Louisiana is now on sale at http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/charlesborges/louisiana/
It is beautiful and legible, but what makes it stand out is that there aren't that many back-slanted scripts, in fact I can't think of any.
Originally purchased from the French @ 3¢ ⅌ a.
Thanks Nick. The handwriting is based on left handed handwriting.
Somehow I thought it might be Charles!
Melanie Snedeker maybe? It looks more feminine than masculine.
Yes it is based on her handwriting. I had to modify and add characters like the s and the o but it turned nice.
And are you giving her a cut of the royalties ?^)
You don't need to answer that - I'm just being facetious.
Good infos, thanks for sharing!
Actually Nick I don't mind answering. Its a fun story. I used to do graphic design work for her and she would \art direct the pieces. I always loved her handwriting and told her we should make a font out of it someday. So I had her write out 3 pages of text and then I picked out the best characters or pieces of letters and modified it and I also added some characters to make it a font. I told her I would give her 50% of the royalty if we sold any. And the rest is history :)
Louisiana is back on sale at my fonts if anyone is interested :)
