New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Any one of you chaps know how I can present a long letter, as if handwritten by a woman a hundred and fifty years ago (or so - plenty of leeway) that can be smoothly read? I know there are lots of good period scripts out there (I rather like three island’s emilyaustin for example), but of course unreadable strain for more than a few lines. What can I do? Use a plantin or somesuch and kiss off any suggestion of a letter effect? Or is there some weird hybrid period-piece script-serif (for indeed the ‘letter effect’ can be served by the vaguest of hints) I can use that you might know of?
Many thanks for reading.
