Mr Canfields ProDesigner: Alejandro Paul
Created by Alejandro Paul, Mr Canfields Pro is a brush script and script font style released by Sudtipos.

The Charles Bluemlein Script Collection is an intriguing pointer of the heady days of hand lettering and calligraphy in the United States. From the early 1930s through World War II, there were about 200 expert hand letterers operating in New york city City alone. This profession saw its death with the advent of photo lettering, and after digital typography, became virtually extinct. The odd method in which the Bluemlein scripts were put together and created - by gathering different signatures and then developing total alphabets from them - is a fascinating calligraphic adventure. Because the set of built designs looked nothing like the original signatures, fictitious names were designated to the new script typefaces. The typeface designs were then showcased in Higgins Ink catalogs.

Alejandro Paul and Sudtipos bring the Bluemlein scripts back to life in a set of expanded digital variations, reflecting the demands of today's designer. Severe care has been taken to render the initial scripts authentically, keeping the fictitious names initially designated to them by Bluemlein.
