'Spencerian Script' is a time-tested classic developed in 1848 by American educator and handwriting teacher Platt Rogers Spencer. Spencer believed that America needed a style of penmanship that could be written quickly, legibly and elegantly for both business correspondence and personal letter-writing. In 1848, Spencer, along with Victor M. Rice, published Spencer and Rice's System of Business and Ladies' Penmanship.
'Hudson'is based on the logotype of a literary magazine from the late 1920s. It’s an art deco take on the classic Roman letterforms, kind of an art deco/Trajan, but with lowercase. With its fine features, it is best used large with shoter names.
'Old Kinderhook' is a historic script inspired by President Martin Van Buren, our Nation's 8th President, and resident of the nearby town of Kinderhook, NY. 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.
