Remsen Script 53093
OTF | TTF
Remsen Script is an interpretation of the 18th-century handwriting on a three-page broadside addressed to “The Merchants and Manufacturers of Great-Britain” from “The Merchants And Traders of Philadelphia in the Province of Pensilvania [sic].” The document (rather politely) decries the oppressive taxation policies of the British Parliament in the wake of the notorious Stamp Act of 1765. Remsen Script is an authentic simulation of the engrossing penman’s formal period script—from its broad antique flourishes to its subtle unevenness and gently ragged strokes. Useful for event announcements, fine product packaging, recreations of historical documents, or anywhere you wish to offer a whiff of a bygone era. Comes with more OpenType features than chests of tea in Boston Harbor, including alternate uppercase styles, scores of authentic ligatures, lining and old-style figures, ink blots, ornaments, and complete Central/Eastern European alphabets—nearly 1,000 glyphs in all.
