Lamar Pen

Lamar Pen is a historical and script font published by Three Islands Press.

Bold and adventurous but with a hint of culture, Lamar Pen reflects the personality of the man whose handwriting inspired it.
Mirabeau B.
Lamar was a poet, orator, traveler, military man, and a celebrated Texan of the 1830s and ’40s.
Although I’m not a fan of his politics—as second president of Texas, he made it a priority to expel or exterminate the republic’s Native American tribes, angering first President Sam Houston, a true friend of the natives—the typeface modeled after his stylish hand might well be my favorite of my vintage penmanship collection.
(Source material included Lamar’s travel journals from 1835, courtesy of Rice University.) OpenType features include numerous ligatures, standard and contextual alternates, lining and old-style figures, and complete Central/Eastern European alphabets.
