It occurred to me years ago that the graphic arts community might find useful a digital typeface that mimicked the classic look of 19th-century handwriting. Conveniently, my mother was then working at the Center for American History at The University of Texas at Austin, my hometown. She made copies of the letters of some famous Texans—Sam Houston, Stephen F. Austin, William Travis, Mirabeau B. Lamar, Thomas Jefferson Rusk. Rusk’s penmanship caught my eye as the most accessible of the bunch, impressively legible while clearly evocative of the period. Released in 1994, Texas Hero is (as far as we know) the first font to simulate historical penmanship.

Texas Hero has more than 500 glyphs, discretionary ligatures, contextual alternates, lining and old-style figures, and full Latin language support.
