Developed by Brian Willson, Austin Pen is a historic and script font style household. This typeface has two styles and was released by 3 Islands Press.

Austin Pen is an interpretation of the handwriting of popular Texas empresario Stephen F. Austin in a secret journal he kept while imprisioned in Mexico City for practically all of 1834. Now in the collection of the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas, Austin's "prison diary" contains his throughts and musings, mainly composed in Spanish. Some parts were kept in pencil and traced over in ink by Moses Austin Bryan, Austin's nephew (son of his sister Emily Austin Bryan Perry-- after whose hand, BTW, I designed the Emily Austin font style). Austin Pen has a great Routine style and a Bold weight that duplicates the look of an over-inked pen. Use to mimic early-19th century handwriting on invites, wine labels, or historic designs.

OpenType features in the Austin Pen family include various contextual, discretionary, and historic ligatures, stylistic alternates, a hand-lettered caps alphabet, ink blots, cross-outs, and full Latin support.
