About this font family
Spare and lighthearted, Rats was inspired by the personal hand of the illustrator Scott Nash. Its small body height and tall ascenders support an oldstyle spirit drawn from early second-century Roman cursive scripts.
Rats was designed by Jean Evans, who was assisted in the digitization by Jill Pichotta. The character set is supported by a whimsical set of dingbats which include starbursts, clouds, and zig zag arrows.
