Round Foundational hand lettering in a typeface


A classic hand lettering typeface based on the traditional round foundational hand lettering learnt while at art school. Create perfect hand lettering every time.

The classic round foundational hand lettering typeface I learned in art school. Create that perfect card or invite with traditional hand lettering and all the confidence that your letters will be perfect every time.

I want to develop this typeface further by pushing an even more calligraphic style in the lettering. I love the sharpness but roundness in the foundational hand and wished I had studied it in more detail while I had the chance under the calligrapher John Smith (yes, his real name), author of The Art of Calligraphy.

This typeface is now available in the Monotype library, replacing the older version that is no longer available.
