Houston Pen™

Early Texas patriots had fascinating penmanship. In researching Texas Hero™ several years back, I had occasion to pore over copies of letters by the likes of Stephen F. Austin, William B. Travis, Thomas J. Rusk, and others. Austin’s hand was pretty messy. Young, brave Travis wrote his last during the Alamo siege. Rusk’s suited my original task. But a couple other styles caught my eye—among them the bold yet graceful strokes of Sam Houston, the Texas Hero. Comes, of course, with a complete character set.* US$39. | Order  Buy old fonts

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