Mrs Sheffield ProDesigner: Alejandro Paul
Designed by Alejandro Paul, Mrs Sheffield Pro is a retro and script font published 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 The second world war, there had to do with 200 expert hand letterers operating in New York City alone. This profession saw its death with the advent of photo lettering, and after digital typography, ended up being essentially extinct. The odd method which the Bluemlein scripts were put together and developed - by collecting various signatures and then building total alphabets from them - is an interesting calligraphic adventure. Because the set of built designs looked nothing like the original signatures, fictitious names were appointed to the brand-new script typefaces. The typeface styles were then showcased in Higgins Ink catalogs.

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