Mr. P's bookplate showing name in "old Kinderhook" font

Old Kinderhook Script

'Old Kinderhook' is used in our Mr. P's 'signature.' It is a historic script inspired by President Martin Van Buren, our Nation's 8th President, and resident of the nearby town of Kinderhook, NY. He earned the nicknames "Little Magician" and the "Red Fox" for his cunning politics. When he was President, Van Buren used a code, 'O.K' to denote a person who was on the 'inside' and could be trusted. It meant that they were either from 'Old Kinderhook,' or had connections there. The expression 'O.K.' is used all around the world to this day.

Bourbon Font

'Bourbon' is a condensed display typeface inspired by whiskey bottles and old packaging. This font works well with our single letters, double letters and triple letter designs. This font is only available in UPPER CASE letters.
