Looking for Script Fonts
0

Hey all,

I don't have a great script library and could use some help. Most of what I have is either too formal/ornate or too grungy/handwritten. I'm looking for something that is authentic, somewhat formal, italian/wine label-esque but contemporary.

Any ideas would help!

Thanks

Where does Hipster fit into (or not into) your specs?

Authentic in what context?

The Hipster fit is a little too brushed casual for what I need, but I like it. I'm ultimately looking for a font to use now, but long term would really just like to build my script collection so any suggestions would help.

I was looking at something like http://www.losttype.com/font/?name=lavanderia
Something sort of in that vein. I like some things going on with that font, but some of the swash caps were a bit much.

--Authentic in that it's a somewhat traditional script without having too much of the ornate cursive (like chopin).

Might I suggest Lavanderia WITHOUT THE SWASH CAPS?

Yikes, what a fail.

I was just looking for a few suggestions even if they were relatively shots in the dark. I guess I came to the wrong place :/

Thanks for responding anyways
