There was no one single inspiration for Metroscript: rather it is an amalgam of many different scripts that were popular hand-lettered styles between the 1920s and the 1950s. Metroscript is suggestive of vintage sports ephemera—especially when tails are added to words—but is also appropriate in virtually any context. Its many ligatures, swashes, alternates, foreign accented characters and tails—all of which connect seamlessly—set it apart from most other script fonts.
All the above features are accessible from Metroscript’s OpenType font. Also included in the same package is a folder of five Metroscript fonts specifically designed for those who only have applications that are not OpenType compatible. By installing the fonts from this folder instead of the OpenType folder, anyone will be able to access all of Metroscript’s unique features.
