An indomitable woman who traveled a lot, Emily Austin (Bryan) Perry was one of the children of Moses Austin, of Austinville, Virginia. Like her famous brother, Stephen F. Austin, she settled in Texas as one of that region's earliest colonists. In her travels, she wrote many a letter home to her husbandí¬each showing a distinctively compact, legible hand. The challenge for me in designing this typeface was resisting the temptation to read and re-read her bossy directives and urgent appeals, all packed tightly together on a page. Emily Austin comes with many discretionary ligatures, contextual alternates, both lining and old-style figures, an inkblot or two, and complete Central/Eastern European alphabets.
Keywords: old handwriting, antique handwriting, old script font, 19th century penmanship, womans hand, historical correspondence, epistolary font.
