In the late 1700s, not long before the start of the American Revolution, a group of Philadelphia merchants made a futile appeal for commercial cooperation across the Atlantic. They laid out their complaints on a three-page broadside, finely engrossed by a penman of the period and passed down through the generations of a family named Remsen. Remsen Script is an interpretation of that penman’s neat, formal cursive—from its broad antique flourishes to its subtle unevenness and gently ragged strokes. A handsome script that offers a whiff of a bygone era. OpenType features include alternate uppercase styles, scores of authentic ligatures, discretionary and contextual alternates, lining and old-style figures, ink blots, ornaments, and complete Central/Eastern European alphabets—nearly 1,000 glyphs in all.
