Anke Calligraphic FG


Originally by Anke Arnold,, this handwriting font was amplified with international characters and reworked spacing as well as vertical adjustments by Fontgrube AH, adding 100 kern pairs, so make sure you have kerning turned on in your word processor or DTP program.

The typeface tries to imitate casual handwriting with a calligraphic nib, without requiring support for OpenType features. It is aimed at everyday users but can also be used in a professional context free of charge.

Version 2.00 has some major improvements in comparison to the one circulating in the internet from 2002 through early 2013, so make sure you got this latest and, for myself, final version.
