Cedar Street is a hand drawn font style published by Three Islands Press.

There's something pleasing about tweaking to excellence a typeface based upon the particular style of lettering applied to a particular kind of paper by a specific human hand. One day, in pursuit of this curious sense of fulfillment, I sat down with a porous pad of lined note paper and printed out the alphabet with a ballpoint pen. I found particularly intriguing the bulbous ends of the strokes where the ink taken in. I could not assist myself: I extracted the rest of the character set, scanned, hand-traced, and-- just like all 3IP font style styles-- manipulated every glyph to an obsessive degree. Called it Cedar Street, after a preferred address of mine. OpenType functions consist of true little caps, various ligatures, and Central/Eastern European alphabets-- nearly 800 glyphs in all.
