'Famous Handwritings'

Dav's picture

Dear fellow Typophiles,

I am currently looking for samples of 'famous' handwriting scripts. I am especially interested in samples of Blaise Pascal's handwriting. Anyone of you ever 'searched' for / noticed / found such samples, sources and lettering excerpts? (Please note, I am not necessarily looking for actual typefaces, based on famous handwriting. But I am of course open and thankful for any suggestions and hints.)

Thank you.

Dav

Dav,

P22.com have script typefaces based upon the handwriting samples of Cezanne, Van Gogh and da Vinci.

ParaType has Pushkin, based on the handwriting of the great Russian poet, in both Latin and Cyrillic.

You could order a reproduction at the National Library in Paris — http://tinyurl.com/yaas78 — they keep the manuscripts of “Pensees”: http://tinyurl.com/ygyyyc

There are a variety of handwriting samples from Jane Austen to Mozart here, nothing by Pascal though.
