Bold and adventurous but with a hint of culture, Lamar Pen reflects the personality of the man whose handwriting inspired it. Mirabeau B. Lamar was a poet, orator, traveler, military man, and a celebrated Texan of the 1830s and '40s. Although I'm not a fan of his politics¡ªas second president of Texas, he made it a priority to expell or exterminate the republic's Native American tribes, angering first President Sam Houston, a true friend of the natives¡ªthe typeface modeled after his stylish hand might well be my favorite of the 3IP collection. Lamar Pen comes with many discretionary ligatures, contextual alternates, both lining and old-style figures, an inkblot or two, and complete Central/Eastern European alphabets.
