Spencerio’s letterforms are inspired by Spencerian-style calligraphy – which are usually written at a slope with a pointed pen. The natural state of each Spencerian stroke is a thin hairline; when the calligrapher wants to make a line thicker, she adds pressure to the nib. Sound easy? It takes years of practice for calligraphers to master the Spencerian style! Fortunately, designers can use this font instead.
Spencerio helps make monogram design easy, and the font is a good selection for any application where a formal script is necessary, such as calling cards, diplomas, or wedding invitations. Spencerio’s character set offers 673 glyphs, including ligatures and alternates for initial and final letters.
