font request

(1/2) > >>

Arthur Menu:
I suspect I am one of the older members of this forum. I learned handwriting (rapidly becoming a lost skill) in the 1950s. In grade 1 we were taught in my home province of British Columbia a style of cursive handwriting called the MacLean Method. I have searched for some time for a cursive font that duplicates the shape of the letters in the MacLean Method. (I can't even find a cursive font in which the lower part of the lower case letter "p" forms a loop as opposed to a straight line.) I would prefer a free font but would be willing to pay a modest fee for what I am looking for.

I don't know if any of the developers in DonationCoders design fonts, but if any do, I would ask them to consider this request.

I have attached an image of the MacLean alphabet.

Great googley-moogley! "Catholic School Cursive" or "Nun Script!"

I always wondered if it had an official name. It's what the Dominican Sisters dunned into our heads and hides when I was an innocent and helpless child. The public schools taught the similar but equally ugly Palmer Method. Which was probably one reason why the parochial school system I was in opted for something 'different.' (Those were different times! No love lost between the public and parochial school systems back then. And an almost ridiculously strict separation of Church and State - on every level - was considered both good and necessary by most Americans up until Regan.)

Ballpoint pens? Ungainly cursive alphabets? Using a pencil for anything other than calculations, shopping lists or marking wood for cutting? The very idea! My grandfather was having none of it. We all were required to learn and practice Spencerian script at home. And the only pen suitable for use by a "lady or gentleman" was an ink pen. His one concession to modernity was the fountain pen. (Even he was happy to abandon dip pens and inkwells.)
