Leander Script is a casual connecting script developed by Austrian designer Viktor Solt-Bittner. The design for Leander Script is not based upon specific historic models, however rather Solt-Bittner's reimagination of nineteenth-century composing designs. In order to accomplish better legibility, Leander Script was designed with a bigger x-height and less slope than discovered in a lot of writing of the period. After setting these parameters, Solt-Bittner filled many pages with both specific letters and random text up until he had actually transformed his normal handwriting and the new design became force of habit to him.

Solt-Bittner then scanned his writing and used the images as a rough guide for the describes he drew on-screen, modifying them to highlight their handwritten essence. This procedure permitted him to capture the quality of the complimentary flowing curves that identify this style. Compared to his daily handwriting, which Solt-Bittner describes as rather angular and tense, and his other script styles, Leander Script appears much smoother and more womanly. The soft sound of the name Leander reflects this rather androgynous quality.

Handwriting naturally uses a variety of forms and connections, and Leander Script uses contextual alternates and custom-made ligatures to create a comparable result. Likewise included are swashed alternates, a stylistic set, and numerous flourishing ornaments all of which allow the user to choose the quantity of flamboyance.
