Background

The ongoing trend for casual letterforms in display typography is strong and many of the most successful typefaces in recent years are those based on a designer’s own handwriting. John Handy, dedicated to John Baskerville’s punch cutter, is very much based on designer Tim Donaldson’s own cultured hand. A fine typeface selection for letters, invitations, menus or wherever an elegant, personal “just-written” look will create the right ambience.
