Friday Font Find: Bradstone-Parker Script

Bradstone-Parker Script is a vintage penmanship-inspired face by Brazilian foundry Intellecta Design. I can imagine this used beautifully for a wedding invitation.

Iza and Paulo W (Intellecta Design) are proud to announce Bradstone-Parker script Script. An interpretation of the golden age writing style from american classical penmanship. Inspired in Zaner and his contemporaries Bradstone-Parker has evocative (sometimes exaggerated) ligature forms and voluptuous forms.

This enhanced OpenType version is a complete solution for producing documents and artworks with an evocative and voluptuous style of calligraphic script:

  • many stylistic alternates for each letter (upper- and lowercase), accessed with the glyph palette;
  • ornaments and fleurons in the typical style from the XIX to the first decades of the XX century writing style, all accessed with the glyph palette using the Ornaments feature;
  • an extensive set of ligatures (100s of contextual alternates plus discretionary ligatures) providing letterform variations that make your designs really special, resembling real handwriting on the page;
  • a tour-de-force kerning work: over 4,600 kerning pairs soft adjusted by hand.
