Lovely hand-lettered fonts besotted blogI had a client send me artwork this week for a custom stamp and the lettering was fabulous, a little girly, but not too much and it definitely looked hand done, so being the lettering-phile that I am I inquired if she created the lettering herself in which she said no it’s a font.  After a second look I realized it was the Anna Clara font that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I have to say it looked so good. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a sweet, hand-lettered font that looks very authentic.

The incredible Molly Jacques (you may have seen her work coursing through the interwebs) has introduced Icing, a simple upright printed hand with some nice motifs. I love Molly’s work and can’t believe that you can currently get a  font from her that is wonderfully budget friendly.  I also spied a very elegant modern calligraphic font that I am seriously crushing on it’s called Shameless . This font was created by Georgia based Neil Summerour the founder of Positype. I love how feminine it is without resorting to excessive curlicues, it’s definitely on the top of my list of fonts I need to have.  It has an effortless flow and feels very relevant for what today’s modern calligraphy aficionados are currently coveting. I say bravo Mr. Summerour, nicely done.

  1. Smitten by ICING and thinking it might be lovely for a project I’m working on. I’m compiling my grandmother’s stories and poems, and this might make a lovely cover. Please tell me, what is the simple font used for “lovely hand-lettered fonts” at the top of the graphic. It complements ICING so well. Thanks!

    1. Allie, that is a beautiful font but it’s incredibly expensive I wouldn’t recommend (I bought set for nearly $700), I needed it for a client project. A nice alternative is Gill Sans light, which I think comes with most computers and also Arial light. Even Futura light may work well too:)
