Mercator is a historic and brush script typeface family. This typeface has 2 designs and was published by International Home of Fonts.

Mercator Set designed by Arthur Baker, USA

Gerardus Mercator was born in the Netherlands in 1512. His name has actually become associated with the Mercator map projection plan where our world is represented as a flat image developing some distortion in the Northern and Southern extremities. It eventually presents a map of the world with excellent clearness. As a guy of the Renaissance, Mercator also had an interest in such topics as calligraphy.

Contemporary American calligrapher Arthur Baker has studied the penmanship of Mercator and has developed this font style based on the lettering used on Mercator's well-known world map.

The Mercator set consists of alternate Swashes which can be utilized for particular letters when a more fancy lettering result is desired.

Mercator is accredited for release through P22 type foundry Inc./ International Home of Fonts.
