Digital Font created and based on only surviving play script Sir Thomas More to contain Shakespeare's handwriting created 1601-04. Three pages of the manuscript, ff. 8r, 8v, and 9r [British Library, Shelfmark: Harley MS 7368] have been identified as Shakespeare’s, based on handwriting, spelling, vocabulary, and the images and ideas expressed.

Unusual Looking Letters

c has a vertical line through it

h has modern e look

d may have a curly top

s sometimes can look like an f, either with no horizontal bar but we use in font the s like version used usually at the end of words in the play manuscript.

The letter can be written very lavishly, with curls and loops.

Capital S has 2 versions in manuscript and in know W. Shakespeare's signature William Shakespeare Signature In the digital version of the font, we preferred the manuscript version.


Numbers and Capitals

There are no digits in Shakespeare manuscript to fill this gap in the font we digitalize the Bank Books figures from 1600-1800. Furthermore, the absence of a few letters also filled with approximation artwork (eg. capital j, k, x) and middle edges manuscripts and letters.
