“This Is Just To Say” by William Carlos Williams set in Suomi Hand Script

Tomi Haaparanta’s Suomi Hand Script simulates everyday handwriting better than any font I’ve seen. It accomplishes the feat not with hi-tech OpenType magic but with hundreds of ligatures in the “Standard” slot, connecting pairs and trios of letters the way most of us do when we write. Suomi Hand strikes a balance between legibility and authenticity, readable at nearly any size because it demonstrates the natural rhythm and contrast made by the human hand.
