Font Family: Military Scribe, Number of fonts: 1*OTF + 1*TTF, Type Foundry: Three Islands Press, Designer: Brian Willson, Design date: 2015
The 10th Regiment of Foot is a British military unit raised more than three centuries ago—and perhaps most famous in the U.S. for seeing action on American soil during the Revolutionary War in the Battles of Lexington and Concord, and the Battle of Bunker Hill. Military Scribe is modeled after the compact utilitarian script on the mid- to late-1770s muster rolls of the Tenth of Foot. I incorporated the work of at least three separate scribes, averaging their neat old penmanship into a legible disconnected cursive. Perhaps the most versatile of all our vintage handwriting fonts, Military Scribe might faithfully reproduce antique letters, labels, lists—or just about any other kind of document of the period. Has more than 1,000 characters and scores of OpenType features.
