Richard Lipton's Bickham Script is a flowing, formal script typeface based on the lettering of 18th century writing masters, as rendered in the unparalleled engravings of George Bickham. This ornate script lends a signature flourish to invitations, menus, annual reports, restaurant logos, and packaging. With dozens of alternate letterforms in addition to its range of weights, Bickham Script's personality can range from poised to extravagant. The most recent version of Bickham Scipt (the OpenType Bickham Script Pro, released 2004) includes over 1,700 glyphs per font. Additionally, users who work with OpenType-supporting applications such as Adobe InDesign or Adobe Illustrator CS may take advantage of a multitude of extra OpenType features, such as the automatic substitution of alternate characters or discretionary ligatures, making it easier to set varying, elegant text in with Bickham Script than ever before. Bickham Script is intended primarily for use in display settings.
Bickham Script supports 100 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
