Seen in everything from wedding invitations and birth announcements toIOUs, menus, and diplomas, script typefaces impart elegance and sophisticationto a broad variety of texts. Scripts never go out of style, and thehundreds of inventive examples here are sure to inspire today’s designers.Derived from handwriting, these are typefaces that are stylized tosuggest, imply, or symbolize certain traits linked to writing. Their fundamentalcharacteristic is that all the letters, more or less, touch thosebefore and after. Drawn from the Golden Age of scripts, from the nineteenthto the mid-twentieth century, this is the first compilation ofpopular, rare, and forgotten scripts from the United States, Germany,France, England, and Italy. Featuring examples from a vast spectrumof sources—advertisements, street signs, type-specimen books, andpersonal letters—this book is a delightful and invaluable trove of longoverlookedmaterial.

Louise Fili runs her own New York-based design firm.
