Saw this article here today, here's an excerpt:
Texts in easy-to-read typefaces make it harder to recall information than if it is presented in less legible formats, research suggests
A study by Princeton University found that a significant number of those tested could recall more information when it was presented in unusual typefaces rarely used in textbooks.
The research suggests that introducing 'disfluency' - by making information superficially harder to understand - deepens the process of learning and encourages better retention.
Do you recognize what font was used on this image?
I'm making an alphabet book for my son. He attends Montessori school, where they introduce the alphabet using lowercase, cursive letters. I'm looking for a typeface that is reminiscent of the lettering that used to be in the cursive workbooks I used as a kid.
Here is a good example:
The "practice strokes" that start letters such as a, o, and q are important. My son's school will use lettering that has those strokes.
Thanks for your help.
P.S. I plan to self-publish the book, too, so I can't use typefaces with personal-use-only licenses. Thanks again.
i must say i have found the type writer one but this handwritten font i am unable to find?
Hello, I am happy to finally announce the release of my new typeface!

More info and buy
Looking for the handwriting font in Tesco's Real Food logo (image attached). Anybody got an idea?
I have come close with Memimas, Cartoleria, School Script but they all have the open "E" in capital style but this font has a classic cursive script "e".
All suggestions welcome.
Caridade is a bold and powerful script face. It draws some inspiration from heavy brush drawn vintage hand lettering but its heavy weight is much thicker with plenty of impact and more contemporary letterforms. The face offers a wide array of weights, from the powerful Heavy weight to the graceful Thin.
Caridade can get the job done for many unique design tasks.
I've been searching fontyukle, indentifont etc for hours but can't find this one.
Need to create a headline to match the labeling... Can someone help out with an ID?
I have come into possession of this typeface and have no idea whether or not it is free. Does anyone know where it comes from, or if there is a good alternative.
Hey, does anyone know this font? Its very similar to Mistral and Brush script, but can't seem to find the exact font. Thanks in advance!!
I know that there are already a few posts in the forum on beginning calligraphy, but I have slightly more specific needs. I'd like to learn calligraphy, especially since at some point I'd also like to do a bit of type design, and I have already come across a number of books on Amazon and elsewhere. The problem is that I'm not really sure if such books cater for left-handers, or if indeed it makes any difference at all. Any thoughts or specific recommendations?
I'm working on a small first edition of a book and now that they're printed, the client would like to have them hand numbered.
So I'm wondering. If written by hand, what kind of ink?
Permanent, but that won't bleed through a matte coated stock.
Or perhaps one of those old-fashioned number stamps, but what kind of ink?
I'd love to hear from anyone with experience in signing or numbering limited editions or with suggestions for this.

Help! I hate the childish, inconsistent, heavy-handed scrawl that passes for my handwriting. However, I'm not much happier with the readily available learn-at-home alternatives: italic or modern cursive. They are legible, but that's about it. They reek practicality, without having elegance or sophistication or individuality.
I am looking for a font to use as a model for my handwriting. My ideal would be something modern, distinctive, legible, fairly easy to write quickly and arresting or "cool" (whatever that means when applied to handwriting). A lot to ask, I know.
I would so appreciate any suggestions. Thank you in advance for your help.
A scanned ad from a Swedish cooking magazine, published in December 2008. Love the font to bits, and would really like to get it! Thanks in advance :)
