Antiquarian Scribe

Antiquarian ScribeHenri Abraham Chatelain was a cartographer and publisher of the famous Atlas Historique, ou Nouvelle Introduction a l’Histoire, a world atlas printed between 1705 and 1732 in Amsterdam. A few years ago, at an antique book shop in London, I bought a page from Chatelain’s atlas—a page covering the Near East, India, the Indian Ocean—that had a particularly alluring, oblique hand-lettering style. (The text is in French, which gave me plenty of samples of diacritics and accented characters.) The overall effect is neat and legible, with a distinctly historical flair. Antiquarian Scribe is a full-featured font that works well with Antiquarian. OpenType features include true small caps, numerous ligatures, several distinctive cartographic ornaments, Greek alphabets, and full Latin support. US$39.

KIND WORDS:

“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

“I've never seen anyone digitize old quill-pen handwriting [like Schooner Script], warts and all. You've done a fine job.”
—R.W., Costa Mesa CA

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

“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

“Not only is Texas Hero a uniquely beautiful font, there’s also the matter of Texas pride.”
—S.P.G., San Antonio TX

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

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