1540 Mercator Script is a historical and script font published by GLC Foundry.

This font was created inspired from the so called “Litterarum latinarum, quas italicas, cursoriasque vocant, scribendum Ratio” (Louvain 1540), a manual intended to calligraphers by the well known scientist Gerhard Mercator.
It was a magnificent “Cancellaresca corsiva” patern, enriched with many alternates, final loops and ligatures.
We have added a lot of accented and other characters who was not existing in the original, for a modern use.
