American Scribe replicates the handwriting of Timothy Matlack (1736–1826), a Quaker, a brewer, a clerk, a leader during the American Revolutionary War, and a master penman. In 1776, when the Continental Congress ordered the Declaration of Independence to be “fairly engrossed on parchment,” that task fell to Matlack, whose script was compact but neat and legible—perfect for the first and most famous American document. American Scribe (2003) is the granddaddy of Declaration of Independence fonts.
American Scribe has more than 600 glyphs, numerous period ligatures, plenty of OpenType alternates, lining and old-style figures, and full Latin language support.
