One of the earliest fonts published by Canada Type was Alamanc, Phil Rutter’s digitization of Imre Reiner’s 1957 calligraphic typeface, London Script. In 2007, when the font was revisited for an update, it was shown to be too light for applications under 24 pt, and too irregular for applications over 64 pt.

So the face was redigitized from scratch, using larger originals. This new digitization maintains a soft contour a slightly darker and steadier stroke, and much better outlines for use at both extremes of scaling. Language support was also greatly expanded, and many alternates and ligatures were added to the redigitized character set. The name was also changed to Reiner Hand, to better reflect the origins of the design.

Reiner Hand is soft and irregular jolts from a calligraphy master’s hand. In a very Reineresque fashion, most characters include the one finishing stroke that makes professional calligraphers pause and ponder this additional touch to a letter’s personality.

Reiner Hand comes in all popular formats. The True Type and Postscript versions come with 2 fonts, one of them loaded with alternates and ligatures. The OpenType version combines both fonts into one, and includes features for intelligent substitution in software that supports advanced typography. Language support includes Western, Central and Eastern European character sets, as well as Baltic, Esperanto, Maltese, Turkish, and Celtic/Welsh languages.
