Script Font Identification Guide

Part 6 - ARTISTIC Category
Sign Lettering (Continued)

These script fonts are the work of lettering artists, and may be intended to resemble text faces while retaining the hand-drawn character. They have some characteristics of Casual hand printing, but they are clearly the work of a disciplined artist, engineer or architect who is creating legible, personal type for signs, handbills, drawings, or other copy where formal text typefaces are too stiff, or impersonal.
