Shakespeare font While the other fonts online claiming to be made from Shakespeare’s handwriting are absolutely fake, our Shakespeare font is completely genuine. William Shakespeare’s handwriting has been observed from six surviving signatures. Interestingly, all of these existing signatures appear on legal documents. In addition to these documents, most scholars believe that the existing three pages of the handwritten manuscript of the classic play Sir Thomas More is also a sample of the handwriting of the decorated creative, William Shakespeare. This play was created 1601-1604. It is from this manuscript that our Shakespeare font has been digitalized.

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.

The manuscript has been confirmed to be Shakespeare’s writing based on handwriting, the spelling, and the vocabulary. The imagery in the text, as well as the ideas expressed, confirm that the manuscript actually came from the pen of Shakespeare.

The Shakespeare Font Features Numbers and Capital Letters from the Middle Ages

The play manuscript that features Shakespeare’s handwriting does not contain any digits. Nevertheless, to maintain the class and spirit of his time, we digitalized numbers from bank books from the years 1600 to 1800. There are some letters that were also not found in the manuscript or in the verified signatures found on Shakespeare’s legal documents. These absent letters were supplied with approximation artwork and letters from manuscripts from the middle ages. The letters that were supplied are capital ‘j’, ‘k’, and ‘x’.
