Emily Austin™

An indomitable woman who traveled a lot, Emily Austin (Bryan) Perry was one of the children of Moses Austin, of Austinville, Virginia. Like her famous brother, Stephen F. Austin, she settled in Texas as one of that region’s earliest colonists. In her travels, she wrote many a letter home to her husband—each showing a distinctively compact, legible hand. The challenge for me in designing the face: resisting the temptation to read and re-read her bossy directives and urgent appeals, all packed tightly together on a page. Has a complete character set, and then some.* US$39. | Order  Buy old fonts

*The OpenType release of Emily Austin™ adds numerous additional ligatures, contextual alternates, lining and old-style figures, and complete Central/Eastern European alphabets.
