Botanical Scribe

By Three Islands Press

Botanical Scribe is modeled after the elegant hand-inscribed legends on the antique floral prints of Belgian artist Pierre-Joseph Redoute, perhaps the most famous painter of flowers. The legends were clearly written by more than one person, but they have a similar neat, rounded, organic, legible character; thus, Botanical Scribe has a fancy, formal quality while retraining the warmth and accessibility of fine yet imperfect handwriting. OpenType features include scores of ligatures (for authenticity), standard and contextual alternates, lining and old-style figures, and complete Central/Eastern European alphabets.
