Douglass Pen™

Frederick Douglass was born in a slave shack in Talbot County, Maryland, in either 1817 (his guess) or 1818 (a date settled on later by historians). He went on to become a distinquished statesman, orator, and abolitionist leader known for his inspiring speeches and writings in support of social justice. Douglass also had fine penmanship: he wrote swiftly and boldly in a handsome, somewhat condensed cursive.* Douglass Pen is modeled chiefly after one of his written speeches recounting John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry, Virginia, in 1859. US$39. | Order  Buy old fonts
