Getty Dubay

By Handwriting Success

The Getty-Dubay® family of fonts has been 500 years in the making — so that you can make your handwriting worksheets in seconds.

These fonts are modern descendants of the chancery handwriting style (now called “Italic”) from the Italian Renaissance, when master scribes designed a fluid and graceful hand, inspired by the proportions of the golden rectangle and Roman capitals.

The Italic style has been in constant use since then. In modern times, it has been celebrated by Alfred Fairbank, Lloyd Reynolds and many others including authors Barbara Getty and Inga Dubay in their Getty-Dubay® Italic method.

The Getty-Dubay® monoline handwriting fonts provide a replete resource to effectively model the highly-legible and beautiful Italic handwriting style. These are the official fonts of Getty-Dubay® Italic. Download the Getty-Dubay® Font Guide for everything you need to know about the Getty-Dubay® fonts.

The Getty-Dubay® Joined fonts produce a clean cursive handwriting with join-as-you-type ease. Four join options are included: Standard, Pointed (altered joins into m, n and r), e k (utilizing the two-stroke e and one-stroke k), and Beginning (easiest joins only). The Getty-Dubay® Basic fonts provide sans-sarif clarity suitable for young writers. The Getty-Dubay® Precursive fonts add serifs to the lowercase letters, while retaining the pure Roman capitals of Basic Italic. The Getty-Dubay® Smallcaps fonts make mixed capitals easy to use. All Getty-Dubay® fonts come with scaffolds such as dashed contours, ruled lines, directional arrow and starting dots (for Basic and Smallcaps). They support multiple Latin-based languages from around the world.
