About this font

This is one of my most popular fonts, and the first one I released. You’ve probably seen it in ads for Marriott, posters for the film Memento, and Alamo Car Rental, and practically everywhere else. It is popular with children’s book publishers, and it was cool to see it used as Hagrid’s handwriting in the Harry Potter books. It’s my own handwriting carefully digitized by hand (not auto-traced). Handwriting fonts are very common now, but they weren’t in 1989. I did it just to see what it would look like, never dreaming that other people might want to use it. (Thank you, Mark Solsburg of FontHaus.) Two new weights—Bold and Heavy—were added in 2003. First released in 1992. More about Felt Tip Roman…

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.

A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts — it is an almost unorthographic life. One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.

The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek, then she continued her way.
