Script Font Reference List (Q-R)

Links to List Pages: [A] [B] [C] [D-E] [F-G] [H-I] [J-L] [M-N] [O-P] [Q-R] [S] [T] [U-Z]


This Script Font Reference List accompanies the Script Font Identification Guide. It provides the original (true) name of the typefaces (using quotes if this is uncertain); the Part(s) of the Script Font Identification Guide that display the typeface; the designer(s) of the typeface; and when it was designed (if known). It also provides at least one identifier for a source of this font, if one is known. It also contains any Alias names used for other versions of this typeface. [Special thanks to Claude and 'rememberbooks' for much of this information.] Last, but surely not least, it lists the people who contributed the samples used in the Guide. [If this column is blank it means a sample is still needed.]

I want to most sincerely thank all those who contributed information, encouragement and especially samples for this project.

List Structure This alphabetical Script Font Reference List is divided into multiple web pages in order to help reduce the time needed for page loading.

Each page has the identical structure and contains links to:
- Other pages of the List,
- A tab-delimited text version of this List for importing to a spreadsheet program,
- The Script Font Identification Guide,
- Reference Books used,
- A List of Font Provider Codes,
- Other parts of the Bowfin Printworks website

Missing Font Samples

** Help Needed**

When the column for Font Sample Supplied by is blank it means I am still looking for a sample for this typeface. If you have this font in your collection, I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide a sample I could include in the Script Font ID Guide.

There is a collection of all the missing Script Font samples in the WANTED List.

The sample format can be seen in the guide. The most important goal is to show all the letters of the font, but if you use the wording of the majority of samples you will have each Upper case letter and numeral once and each lower case letter at least twice. A drawing program like Illustrator, Freehand, Canvas or Corel Draw can be used to make .gifs of font samples. These are best, because you can control the content and size, but a scanned sample will do, especially if it shows the complete font.

The preferred sample size is approximately 350-375 pixels wide, and apprx. 80-120 pixels high, so that two samples can fit on a line. If the font is only legible at a larger size that is OK, but my goal is to keep page loading times shorter by using smaller sample files.

I have done my best to make the information in this List accurate, but if you find errors, or can provide missing information, please send me an e-mail. I welcome corrections, comments and suggestions.
