Where to start? F, I, J, K, L, T, U, and V are unencumbered by legibility; lower case bowls are blobby--any calligrapher will remember having made that mistake. An utter mishmash of serif styles, many like nothing that would be made with the pen nib used in the hand the font is trying to imitate. Italic lettershapes tilted to be straight up and down, destroying any flow... and yet it has somehow become the Comic Sans of the Renaissance fair world, ugly and horribly overused. By all means, please consider the infinitely superior Insula font instead.

Bah, while it may not be a perfect recreation of actual calligraphy, this font is the perfect blend of the FEEL of calligraphy with the kind of easy legibility that is very difficult to come across in most Gothic fonts. <3

Impossible d'utiliser la police: "est un fichier de police invalide"...

Legibility?! Take a look at "L". Especially with the kerning, it's indistinguishable from an very swashy "I". It's not alone in this regard. Set "Lmpulse" and "Tuke Box" in Black Chancery, print it out, and ask someone not intimately familiar with the font to read it to you.

Great font. This would be perfect to use on the logo of my fantasy fiction site. I know it is public domain but since I will have books on sale at the site (no books would use the font, tough) I would like to ask for permission before i use it. Please contact me at Thank you!
