I think this is done by hand -- observe how repeating characters look different.

Ya know, when I got this mag I was SURE this would end up a thread on Typophile! And immediately checked for the credit, the aforementioned Deanne Cheuk. It's really nicely done.

I could've sworn that I saw something like this in one of the books I recieved today as gifts (http://typophile.com/node/16962), but can't find it now! I even remember the same word being used.

This brought to mind the Rebecca Alaccari revival font Pendulum.

Wow - actually interesting caligraphy - pretty rare [for me].

BTW, is this inspired by Mommie, or
are both inspired by something older?
