Script Font Identification Guide

Part 3 - FORMAL Category

These script fonts are easily recognizable from diplomas and certificates. The rigidly formed letters are designed to reflect deliberate, meticulous, careful workmanship and attention to detail. Legibility is a secondary consideration. German Fraktur styles are included in this group. (Lombardic, 'Mediaeval', Celtic and Uncial styles, which are usually included in Blackletter, I have put under Part 4, Artistic -Calligraphic Lettering. My reason is that they are much less rigid in their formation, and therefore do not quite fit the "Formal" stylistic Category. Some ambiguous designs may be in both Categories.
