Bouncy, effortless-looking handwriting can put us at ease or make us smile. Blithe captures the casual flair of a felt-tip pen with clean monoline strokes. Laura Worthington has retained the distinctive quirks of real handwriting – such as characters that dip and dance about the baseline – and imperfectly varied letterforms (see the “ee” ligature, and lowercase “o”s that don’t quite join, or slightly overlap).
As with many of her script faces, Laura includes a wide array of 148 ligatures and 47 alternates, to create even more convincing connections, all in the service of authenticity. Blithe is ready to welcome readers of cute Instagram posts, cupcake menus, baby clothing – anywhere that calls for gentle charm.
