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.
