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. 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—but the typeface modeled after his stylish hand stands among the most elegant, legible, and evocative of the period.
Lamar Pen has 600 glyphs, scores of period ligatures, standard and contextual alternates, lining and old-style figures, ink blots, cross-outs, and full Latin support.
