Reiner Hand is a hand drawn typeface released by Canada Type.

One of the earliest font styles released by Canada Type was Alamanc, Phil Rutter's digitization of Imre Reiner's 1957 calligraphic typeface, London Script. In 2007, when the typeface was revisited for an upgrade, it was revealed to be too light for applications under 24 pt, and too irregular for applications over 64 pt.

So the face was redigitized from scratch, utilizing larger originals. This brand-new digitization keeps a soft contour a slightly darker and steadier stroke, and much better outlines for use at both extremes of scaling. Language assistance was also significantly broadened, and lots of alternates and ligatures were contributed to the redigitized character set. The name was likewise altered to Reiner Hand, to much better show the origins of the design.

Reiner Hand is soft and irregular shocks from a calligraphy master's hand. In an extremely Reineresque fashion, many characters consist of the one completing stroke that makes expert calligraphers pause and contemplate this additional touch to a letter's personality.

Reiner Hand is available in all popular formats. The True Type and Postscript variations include 2 typefaces, among them loaded with alternates and ligatures. The OpenType version combines both fonts into one, and consists of functions for intelligent replacement in software application that supports sophisticated typography. Language assistance includes Western, Central and Eastern European character sets, along with Baltic, Esperanto, Maltese, Turkish, and Celtic/Welsh languages.
