Geographica Hand

Geographica HandModeling antique fonts after historical materials gives you intimate familiary with those old letters and journals and maps. The maps that inspired our Geographica serif family proved more fruitful than I first expected: they begat a pair of spinoffs of sorts, each replicating a particular 18th-century handwritten style. This is one of these. (Geographica Script is the other.) Geographica Hand mimics the careful hand-lettered serif text on a series of British maps printed in the 1700s by Emanuel Bowen, Thomas Jefferys, and others—several of them representing Colonial America and Canada. The letterforms have long serifs, irregular lines, and an agreeably organic feel. Geographica Hand comes with a series of sketchy map ornaments—churches, windmills, boats, trees, and such. Best perhaps for display situations, but plenty legible in text blocks, as well. OpenType features include true small caps, contextual and discretionary ligatures, lining and old-style figures, cartographic ornaments, and full Latin support—900 glyphs in all. US$39.

KIND WORDS:

“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 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

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

“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

“Thanks so much for the great service and wonderful typefaces!”
—S.F., Evanston IL

“There's a fair number of what I call 'scrawl' faces out there. [Treefrog] is one of the very few I really like.”
—P.M., Palatine IL

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