The Jackalope™ typeface is a new original script from LetterPerfect Fonts. The design is a hybrid of pressure pen calligraphy infused with whimsy and curlicue terminals. Letterforms are free-spirited and edges are rough, simulating spontaneous writing on rough paper. In addition to the full ANSI western character set, Jackalope includes a full set of small capitals, both lining and old style numbers, and swash lowercase alternate characters that can be used as terminal letters at the ends of words for additional flourish.
Jackalope LP History
The genesis and realization of Jackalope was also a hybrid process. In 1996, LetterPerfect commissioned lettering artist Kathy Schinhofen to provide pen-written source material based on her commercial handwriting style and specifically on a logo she had designed for its Viva la Fontsline of script fonts. This work was digitized by LetterPerfect's Garrett Boge and later fonticized by former Hallmark Cards type maven Myron McVay who unified the design and contributed additional characters. The design sat unfinished for over 12 years until Garrett Boge revived the project in 2010 filling out the extended character set and integrating the design into a multi-featured OpenType™ font.
Jackalope LP is a font comprising the full extended character set – including small caps, lining and old style numbers, and contextual swash lowercase alternates – which can be accessed via the type features menu in OpenType savvy applications. For software lacking OpenType features, Jackalope LP Regular and Jackalope LP Expert are two conventional fonts comprising the full extended character set between them.

Licenses for electronic publications (ePubs)
An electronic publication license can be used for the embedding of fonts into electronic documents including e-books, e-magazines and e-newspapers. A license covers only a single title but is valid for the full operating life of that title. Every issue of an e-magazine, e-newspaper or other form of e-periodical is considered a separate, new publication. Format variations do not count as separate publications. If a publication is updated and distributed to existing users, a new license is not required. However, updated versions issued to new customers are defined as new publications and require a separate license.Learn more about licensed for EPUBS
