Botanical Scribe

Botanical Scribe“The Raphael of Flowers” is what they called Pierre-Joseph Redouté a couple hundred years ago. The Belgian native became famous in France, where he painted floral watercolors for both Marie Antoinnette and Empress Josephine. But what cemented his legacy was his perfection of a stipple engraving technique that brought his botanical art to the masses.

Botanical Scribe is modeled after the neat, cursive hand-inscribed legends on these antique prints. Because it simulates handlettering, the font retains a warm, organic quality not seen in fancy modern scripts while remaining both elegant and legible. (Its many ligatures lends to this authenticity.) Good for formal invitations or historical simulations. OpenType features include scores of ligatures, stylistic and contextual alternates, lining and old-style figures, floral ornaments, and complete Central/Eastern European alphabets. US$39.

RANDOM SIGHTING:
Emily Austin

KIND WORDS:

“I think [Texas Hero] is amazing. It is incredibly beautiful and in my opinion looks very authentic.”
—E.H., Brookline MA

“I'm always on the lookout for handwriting fonts that look more like handwriting than fonts. I've always relied on Texas Hero, Schooner Script, and Emily Austin and was very happy to see Lamar Pen and American Scribe.”
—A.L., Los Angeles CA

Bonsai is very beautiful; the font's antiquity seems to conjure a sweet staleness of old newsprint, somehow.”
—A.T., Ontario, Canada

“Keep up the fonts! They are some of the best I have seen in 10-plus years of design.”
—M.O., Little Rock AR

“Your fonts are gorgeous, and in particular, your handwriting fonts are the best I've ever seen.”
—J.H., Witny, Oxfordshire, England

“You have maintained a level of quality in the design of your various fonts that rivals the best foundries.”
—G.V., Salem OR

“The fonts you offer are quite unique and beautifully done.... Your site and ecommerce process was also a pleasure to view and to use.”
—R.M., Newbury NH
