Default Staunton Script from P22 fonts

From the P22 newsletter:

>>P22 and Sherwood Type introduce "The Staunton Script Family":

The Staunton Script Family was developed to parallel typographer Ted
Staunton's authorship of a historical novel titled The Clifford Bible. The
novel traces seven generations of the Clifford family from entries on the
flyleaves of an old family Bible. This collection of fonts was generated to
augment the text and reflects some of the stylistic transitions that evolved
in a period spanning between the English Civil War (1640s) and the Victorian
Era (1839-1901). The scripts illustrate the stylistic transitions from
gothic to copperplate, reflecting cultural influences and the
characteristics imparted by the evolution of writing instruments: from the
quill to the steel nib.

Each distinctive writing style was reconstructed as a font for Mr.
Staunton's Book Project, but the availability to the public is a welcome
addition to designers in search of authentic historical handwriting fonts.
Each font can be downloaded individually at $19.95 each or in one set for
a special price of $79.95 (regular combined price: 139.65)
