Miss Fitzpatrick

This font, part of the Charles Bluemlein Script Collection, has been bookmarked under the design tab on my browser for ages now, and I'm still waiting for a project to use it! A font that harks back to the pre-digital glory days of good penmanship and calligraphy, the description of the font includes this interesting tidbit:

"The odd way in which the Bluemlein scripts were assembled and created - by collecting different signatures and then building complete alphabets from them - is a fascinating calligraphic adventure. Because the set of constructed designs looked nothing like the original signatures, fictitious names were assigned to the new script typefaces."

So cool! From the Sudtipos project.
