All of which is to say that if you’re going to try and forge historical documents, you should do your research first. Times New Roman, released in 1932, is a good bet for revising anything recent unless you’re trying to claim something about, say, the Brooklyn Bridge. In that case, you might want Bookman, released a healthy nine years before its construction began. To be completely safe, you could opt for Textualis, an early form of blackletter typeface used in the Gutenberg Bible. We joke, of course, don’t forge historical documents.
Erm…no. Get a typewriter.
Konrad Kujau has entered the chat.
“If I can’t get an A, then I’ll take the F. Nobody cares about the difference, anyway.”
In regard to McGoey, I suggest he should change his name to McGuffin and tries another diversion. SCNR, jokes about names…
I wonder what type of face he made when the court’s decision became known? We should as Look what he looked like.

Unless I am making fast notes, in which case it is more Illegible (Sans Serif).
I have doctor script handwriting. There is no font anywhere that is less legible.
They fail to provide a link for a TTF for Library Hand!
Here you go
(Looks like this project was inspired by reading that very article!)
In addition to English, the font is designed to be compatible with Catalán, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Old English, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish, including special glyphs and diacritics used by these languages. Please contact me if you find that the font is missing any glyphs used by these languages.
And I am definitely going to install that on a workmates desktop, and try to make it the system font…
Ooh, hand lettered typography!
I never managed to learn the cursive; my own handwriting is architect adjacent.
My favorite hand letterer without a doubt is Daniel Clowes!
Yeah, it’s fully featured, including stylistic alternates, lining figures and ligatures
Library for the blind
Light to the blind
I like that it’s from 1906.
Kinda a repost from years ago.
