Elegant, quirky, fluid, brutish, ostentatious― a visual resource of cursives and other typefaces that resemble handwriting.From wedding announcements to IOUs, there are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of scripts―some “classic,” others eccentric. Derived from handwriting, these are typefaces that are stylized to suggest, imply, or symbolize certain traits linked to writing. Their fundamental characteristic is that all the letters, more or less, touch each other.
