Fabulous Fonts


Isn't it funny how we are all glued to our computers, we probably have not written anything more than a thank you note in years, and yet anything showing handwriting is now all the rage! As I was preparing this post, I was even more amazed at what products are now available to us reminding us of the lost age of pen and ink.

I am a big fan of all things done in Spencerian Script. Back in 1850 Mr. Platt Spencer decided our handwriting needed to be beautiful as well as personal and voila! Spencerian Script was born and to this day the design stops all of us antiquers in our tracks for its sheer beauty. Take a look at some of my favorites and newest trends.

Below many font and handwriting items found on Etsy.
(Just search french script)

And not to be left out, Curious Sofa has added a few of our favorite
lettered items to the website too.
