Lamar Pen™

Bold and adventurous but with a hint of culture, Lamar Pen reflects the personality of the man whose handwriting inspired it. Mirabeau B. Lamar was a poet, orator, traveler, military man, and a celebrated Texan of the 1830s and ’40s. Although I’m not a fan of his politics—e.g., as second president of Texas, he made it a priority to expel or exterminate the republic’s Native American tribes, angering first President Sam Houston, a true friend of the natives—the typeface modeled after his stylish hand stands among the most elegent, legible, and evocative of the period. (My source material included scans of Lamar’s travel journals from 1835, courtesy of Rice University.) Lamar Pen has proved a popular complement to our existing font series named for Texas patriots, the others being Texas Hero, Houston Pen, and Emily Austin. It comes, of course, with a complete character set.* US$39. | Order  Buy old fonts
