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—as second president of Texas, he made it a priority to expell 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 might well be my favorite of the collection. (My source material included Lamar’s travel journals from 1835, courtesy of Rice University, whose first page I’ve recreated in the graphic you see here.) Lamar Pen has proved a popular complement to our existing font series named for Texas patriots: Texas Hero, Houston Pen, and Emily Austin. It comes, of course, with a complete character set.* US$39. | Order  Buy old fonts

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