20 Awesome Script Fonts

  

Rich in elegance and curves and inspired by ancient handwritten texts, today there are a large gamut of script fonts available for use, you are literally spoiled for choice.

Though they are considered a single group, calligraphy fonts are generally subdivided into various styles/categories...

Formal ones, inspired by the formal calligraphy of the seventeenth century; casual ones, more modern fonts that generally vary in thickness and aim at reproducing fast manual writing; calligraphic fonts, which comprise actual calligraphy fonts that have been used for centuries and are still commonly used today; and finally Blackletter & Lombardic fonts, inspired by lettering for manuscripts used prior to the invention of movable type.

The commonality is that they are all inspired by manual writing. This is why they feature beautifully fluid characters that allow designers to add personal and playful accents to their work. However, this manual aesthetic tends to limit the use of calligraphy fonts to titles or "accents", excluding them from the body of the text; except for announcements, invitations, etc.

We tried to select the widest range of free fonts, and most of the fonts on this list are free, however, the few that have costs associated we included because we found them worthy of mention in this list and well worth the price.
