A Scriptaculous Year

Ed Benguiat had once said, “I do not think of type as something that should be readable. It should be beautiful.” And in 2013, the type choices were gorgeous. It was a scriptaculous year with the interest in script type, hand lettering and calligraphy was at an all time high. Perhaps it was a bit of penmanship nostalgia due to our increasingly digital lifestyles or the fact that cursive handwriting is starting to disappear from public classrooms. Whatever it might be, we're glad that people love them.

Here's some of our favorite script typefaces that are elegant, have personality, and don't look like standard wedding invitation faces.
