Abigail Adams™

“My Dearest Friend” is how she began nearly all her letters to her husband, John. I refer, of course, to Abigail Smith Adams, first Second Lady and second First Lady of the United States. Her famous correspondence with John Adams produced nearly 1,200 letters over a span of some 40 years, leaving us with a priceless record of early American life—from household routines to war and politics to expressions of personal worry and devotion. Abigail’s handwriting, while not the most beautiful, is sure and expressive—as befitting her extraordinary sway and intelligence—and carries a genuine flavor of the period. Abigail AdamsIn making the font that bears her name, I focused chiefly on her letters from the 1780s and ’90s, when she’d taken to using a disconnected cursive, which struck me as distinctive and alluring. Comes with a full complement of OpenType features.* US$39 | Order  Abigail Adams font
