Fashion Scripts

FASHION SCRIPTS are fraternal twins. The letterforms of each were inspired by an example of 1940s department store lettering. FASHION BRUSH has a rough, art brush texture; FASHION MARKER has the smooth line of a Sharpie®.


The inspiration was this example of wood type formerly used by Thalheimers department stores.

From examples in the collection of Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA. According to their information, “The type follows handlettering styles of the 1940s and is unique compared to 20th-century script typefaces in metal.”

My Pen Script Monograms were also inspired by this wood type.

Each font includes upper and lowercase, numbers, punctuation, and international characters.
