Playwrite Perú Font


Playwrite is a typeface engine that allows the creation of primary school cursive fonts.

Due to the absence of handwriting education guidelines in the curriculum and no prescribed model, there is a great deal of diversity in the approaches to handwriting teaching. The most widespread method is to teach uppercase print style letters first and connected cursive writing second. However in some schools, student may start with cursive writing in first grade itself, and in others, cursive writing is not taught at all. An important difference is seen in private schools, where handwriting may be taught using models imported from abroad. For instance, Spanish-English bilingual schools teach using the Sassoon model that was developed in England.

This upright continuous cursive handwriting model features medium-length ascenders and descenders. The capital letters are cursive and include a few complex shapes, notably in 'F', 'R', and 'O'. The letter 'G' is distinctive, appearing to be influenced by American styles rather than the traditional French vertical cursives. The lowercase letters have looped extenders and showcase a unique two-stroke construction of 'k'. The letter 'f' is characterized by a straight descender, while 'v' and 'w' are noted for their knots, adding to the distinctiveness of this cursive style.
