American Scribe

American ScribeThe Declaration of Independence was of course authored by Thomas Jefferson, but his is not the classic handwriting on the engrossed copies familiar to most Americans. That belonged to Timothy Matlack, an early patriot who fought in the Revolution, sat with the prosecution at Benedict Arnold’s court martial, and also penned copies of a number of documents for General George Washington. Matlack’s script was compact but legible, perfect for the first and most famous of American documents. Now you, too, can write that way. OpenType features include numerous additional ligatures, standard and contextual alternates, lining and old-style figures, and full Latin support. US$39.

KIND WORDS:

“[American Scribe] may be the greatest font ever! Everyone on the planet should have it!”
—M.P., Boulder CO

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

“All [these] typefaces are wonderful, romantic creative fonts which no serious designer could possibly overlook.”
—G.H., London, England

“[Treefrog] is a real mess and breaks all the rules and I love it.”
—P.M., Palatine IL

“Well done on preserving the old ways of writing—they wrote and spoke so much nicer than we do now.”
—A.K., Adelaide, S. Australia

“I think [Texas Hero] is amazing. It is incredibly beautiful and in my opinion looks very authentic.”

“I took one look at American Scribe and knew it was the Declaration of Independence before reading the ad copy. You captured it perfectly.”
—B.P., Marietta OH
