While poring over the source materials for the Geographica family in 2016, I couldn’t help but admire the elaborate roundhand penmanship of British engravers of the mid-1700s. I found myself studying other examples of such handwritten excellence, among them the maps of Emanuel Bowen (1694–1767), Geographer to King George II, as well as English and American trade cards of the period—like those of artist and printmaker William Hogarth (1697–1764). The result (six painstaking months later) is Geographica Script, an elegant roundhand simulation steeped in 18th-century sophistication.

Geographica Script ornaments

Beyond its hundreds of alternate letterforms and flourishes, the font comes with fifty illustrative ornaments—crowns, beasts rampant, maritime creatures, and more. Use in formal invitations and announcements, wine labels and other packaging, or to simulate antique script. US$39. | Order  order the Geographica Script font
