Old Scientific Illustration Font


Old Scientific Illustration is a decorative formal script italic font for general use and especially designed for compatibility with graphics programs.

The font design is based on the engravings contained in the botanical series Flora Londinensis by William Curtis which was first published in 1777 and is very similar in appearance to many scripts used in other scientific illustrations of the period.

Being a formal script type font having multiple variants of each letter with different joining-points as well as also having swishes, flourishes, tails, style alternatives and additional characters it has many more glyphs included than are usual in a simple font.

The font also contains a smallcap alphabet and a set of standalone lowercase characters for use in scientific labelling. It also has an extra set of alternative numerals with which you can avoid number sequences becoming repetitive.
