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. He earned the nicknames "Little Magician" and the "Red Fox" for his cunning politics. When he was President, Van Buren used a code to let people know that this person or that person was 'O.K.' or 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 OK is used all around the world to this day.

Old Kinderhook is a bold, strong script with the personality inspired by Martin van Buren.
