JP Hand Straight & JP Hand Slanted
Originally released as shareware in January 1994.
Re-released as freeware in May 1997.
These fonts imitate two types of poor handwriting (both my own,
sadly). While they are installed as normal and italic versions of
the same family to save menu space, I do not recommend using them
Among the layout projects I do are high-school teachers' manuals
and photocopiable worksheets. As a result, I use a lot of script
fonts for correct (and wrong) answers, samples of what a student
might write, fake bulletin-board notices, letters, etc. But many
commercially available scripts are just too nice, and grunge
fonts are usually too grungy. I prepared extensive samples of my
own handwriting, scanned and autotraced them, and then brought
the result into Altsys Fontographer 3.5.1 on a PC-compatible
computer. To keep the scruffiness of the fonts, I tried not to
clean up the scanned outlines more than was necessary to avoid
PostScript errors and ensure adequate hinting.
Both fonts have the complete Adobe standard character set.
You may use JP Hand without payment, but you may not sell these
fonts or distribute any modified version without my written
consent. JP Hand may not be distributed without this text file.
To avoid loss of quality, please do not convert these fonts to other
formats without checking with me first. JP Hand is currently
available in four formats (PostScript and TrueType for both
Macintosh and Windows) and has been tested in all four formats.
