Manuscript, Typeface


This typeface was inspired by the typographic forms in Illuminated Manuscripts. These manuscripts were filled with hand-drawn calligraphic texts, some of which were so elaborate and slanted, they became more than words on a page, but were a piece of art in and of themselves.

My preliminary sketches for this font can be seen below. After I had each letter planned out I redraw them in Adobe Illustrator.

To the left you can see this font used for a gardening poster design.
