I happened to mention to the proprietor of a Maine antiques barn one day that I’d be interested in any old typewriters she might happen to come across. A conversation ensued, the proprietor withdrew into a back room, and she re-emerged with an old handwritten letter, dated “18 Sept. 1825” and spanning nearly three pages. The letter—penned by one Samuel Clarke, a Princeton, Massachusetts, pastor—sought donations for the victims of an accident at sea. I thought his script unique, stylish, and definitely something worth simulating in an authentic old handwritten font. The result: Schooner Script, a disconnected cursive with long descenders and a distinctly historical flair.
Schooner Script has more than 500 glyphs, with old-style and lining figures, standard and discretionary ligatures, contextual alternates, ink blots, and an extra flourish or two. Comes with full Latin language support.
