Every once in a while, I come across a typeface that is special. 'Dear Sarah' is one of those typefaces.
In the words of its creator, Christian Robertson:
"Dear Sarah harks back to a time when people wrote to loved ones in longhand on wax-sealed stationery. Until the advent of OpenType, the magic of handwritten characters was ruined when identical letters glaringly showed up twice in a row.
Dear Sarah Pro uses OpenType to its full potential, with hundreds of contextual alternates that allow natural cursive connections, plus swash, dingbats, and small caps."
There is even a set of beautifully crafted 'ink-blot' characters.
Visit Veer Type to see the whole typeface. And download the excellently produced 6-page PDF to see how beautiful it looks in print form.
At a mere $119.00, it's now at the top of my 'find a project that gives me an excuse to purchase it' (FAPTGMAETPI) list.
