Einstein's Handwriting is Now a Font
on 12 May 2015
Albert Einstein’s genius manifested itself not only through his theories in modern physics, but his handwriting too. His signature penmanship blended elements of both Latin and Kurrent—an old form of cursive based off of medieval times—to form a unique style that was “very disciplined and extremely playful.” Now anyone can access the famous physicist’s handwriting thanks to a Kickstarter campaign by German typographer Harald Geisler that’s turning it into a font. Until 13 June 2015, a pledge of $25 will get you a fully digitized copy of the typeface—groundbreaking brilliance not included.
