Looks suspiciously like my Doctor’s handwriting for prescriptions.

I created this font to preserve her handwriting, and enable her to continue to write with her own letters.

Wouldn’t you use some older correspondence to inspire the font, then? I don’t quite understand the desire to preserve her handwriting while already in decline.


Came here to say the same thing. Like many things one encounters on the internet: at first glance it seems novel but on closer inspection it’s really just weird, sad and a bit pointless.

All funds from purchases of Shake go to research on Parkinson’s

We wouldn’t be talking about it if it was a font that just looked like handwriting of a healthy person. Anything that brings attention to and raises money to cure this horrible disease I am all for.
