Wagner Script was created by Patrick Griffin, Kevin King and published by Canada Type. Wagner Script consists of 4 styles and family plan choices. p > This gem of a script was what metal age typographers called a "continental face", which essentially indicated an old, most likely uncredited, metal face that was common to lots of European foundries. This specific one ran the rounds in the very first half of the twentieth century under the names Donatello, Aigrette, Troubadour, Hertha, Butterfly and Gracia. A little research study reveals its real origin to be circa 1926 at the Wagner & & Schmidt foundry in Leipzig, where it was a bold script called Troubadour. A cut that was much lighter, more sophisticated, and a lot more ideal for larger display screen applications was made by the Amsterdam Lettergieterij in the late 1930s, under the name Gracia. Gracia was a typical sight on perfume bottles, wine labels, chocolate boxes, and book covers in Europe for about 4 decades. Like many treasures of its kind, it seems to have actually never been considered for digital retooling up until now.

Wagner Script corrects and greatly expands on the original metal principle, to consist of lots of alternate forms, even as lots of as four variations on some characters. It also includes extended range Latin-based language support. The Wagner Script plan includes both Wagner Script Pro, a premium feature-loaded OpenType font for sophisticated typography applications, in addition to three TTF typefaces for the legacy format user.
