Marydale

MarydaleWhile working at a trade magazine many years ago, I admired the hand-lettering of a colleague and suggested she let me model a font after her penmanship. She drew out the alphabet, and I launched (then Altsys) Fontographer and (to shorten a long story) ended up designing my first font. For the heck of it, I released it and, astonishingly, it took off. And since then, Marydale herself has had the mixed blessing of seeing her handwriting (and name) plastered all over the planet. The Marydale family has regular, bold, and black weights; the OpenType release adds true small caps, numerous ligatures, and a stylistic set that substitutes a few less quirky glyphs (duplicating our “Marydale Inspired” version of the font)—as well as support for Central/Eastern European, Greek, and Cyrillic languages. US$79.
