Rare Bird Specimen VI Regular

Designed by Rare Bird Font Foundry, Rare Bird Specimen VI is a modern calligraphy font published by Rare Bird Font Foundry.

Specimen VI is a refined hand by artist Aileen Fretz of Plume Calligraphy: thoroughly modern yet absolutely timeless. We have our sights set on this one becoming an instant classic.


Specimen VI takes its inspiration from the old world, while remaining thoroughly contemporary. It is unique while maintaining legibility.


At 2,580 characters, we dare say it is one of the most robust script fonts on the market today. The font includes extensive Opentype programming that authentically replicates Aileen’s unique handwriting pattern. As you type, watch the letters automatically adjust between connected and disconnected forms. Specimen VI also features formal titles, prepositions, social media wordart, and web navigation wordart, serif and sans serif Roman numerals, in and out-stroked letterforms at beginning and end of words, multiple alternate lowercase t cross-strokes, realistic double-letter ligatures, seamlessly connecting calligraphic letters, multiple styles of alternate capital letters, including swashes, and basic Latin encoding. Specimen VI is a typesetters’ dream.


In the pages of your favorite wedding tome; the signage, robe embroidery, and dinner menus of that coveted boutique hotel on the Italian Riviera, the labels of an artisanal hand-poured candle line, your new favorite Rosé, hand-crafted Belgium chocolate truffles, the indie cosmetic line fit for royalty, in any instance that you may be in need of a refined modern script.
