vLetter Historic is a collection of 7 handwriting fonts from American icons including: Abraham Lincoln, Gerorge Washington, John Adams, Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson and William Clark as well as the Declaration font made from the handwriting in the final copy of the Declaration of Independence. This font is a formal calligraphic style that includes the old-fashioned long s" character, as well as John Hancock's signature. The handwriting is actually that of professional penman Timothy Matlack, who was commissioned to handwrite ("engross") the final copy of the Declaration of Independence.
