Natural-looking hand lettering is very hard to do with a font, but Underware seems to have done a good job with Bello (http://www.underware.nl/site2/index.php3?id1=bello&id2=pdfs), a voluptuous and brash brush script that really seems to work, even in running text and even at huge sizes. You can get some idea of the scope of this ambitious collection at the link above, and download a really lovely PDF that shows the fonts in action.

There are many odd parts to this font family. The main script font, small caps, ligatures, swash elements that can be printed in a second color, and more.

If you love a good script take a look at Bello.

You know how much I like script fonts but this is awfully heavy...is it meant to be a display font--I believe that's the correct term???

TerrieYes. As I think I said — it is based on signs in butcher and grocery shops from the early part of the 20th century.

But I was surprised (in the PDF they offer) to find that large text (18 point, maybe?) was really quite readable and pleasant.
