Designed by Stuart Sandler and Crystal Kluge, Madelinette is a hand drawn and script font published by Tart Workshop.
Simple. Classic. The beautiful handwriting of your mother. Madelinette is inspired by Palmer Method which was introduced to the US in 1894 as a modern alternative to Spencerian. The method won many awards including the Gold Medals at the Panama Pacific Expo of 1915 and the Sesquicentennial Expo in 1926. This disciplined style set the standard of cursive penmanship for decades of American schoolchildren.
Of course, Madelinette was written with a steel nibbed dip pen in black ink…she’s traditional. She looks perfect in grandmother’s pearls & sweater sets. Travels Europe on holiday. Loves Parisian food. Owns a tweed suit, plaid capris, a single pair of jeans and more shoes than she can count.
Not to be outdone, Madelinette contains loads of OpenType features including automatic ligatures, alternate beginning and ending forms, a complete set of swash and stylistic alternate forms creating a flawless and smoothly organic flowing handwritten look.
