BIRDWHISTLE is a handwriting font with an artistic flair. Inspired by notes from the artist Willie Marlowe, Birdwhistle is like its namesake: pretty, playful, distinctive and a little unpredictable. Birdwhistle mixes upper- and lowercase in a creative way, and includes alternate characters for an even more spontaneous look.
Willie is a dear friend, longtime colleague, and marvelous artist with an international reputation; please check out her paintings. Using 25 years of her notes and letters to me, I made Birdwhistle, striving to keep some of the whimsy and spontaneity of the original.
Here is a sample of her handwriting.
