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. The OpenType release adds numerous additional ligatures, standard and contextual alternates, lining and old-style figures, and complete Central/Eastern European alphabets. US$39.

KIND WORDS:

“I happened across your website completely by accident, and I was astounded by the fonts I found there. They are amazing.”
—M.S., Ontario, Canada

“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

“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

“I'm a collector of 19th century antiques and photographs, and like to make labels and scrapbooks using fonts that fit the period of my items. I've even tried to learn the penmanship myself using dip pens... your fonts will make it so much easier!”
—P.M., Palatine IL

“These are fantastic fonts, and I appreciate that your company offers a trial download (minus the "e") so I could sell these fonts to my client.”
—L.A., Woodinville WA

“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

“The Lamar Pen font is divine. We are using it on a novel set in the eighteenth century, and the author is ecstatic.”
—J.H., London, England
