This lively script is based on a handlettered offering from The Hunt Brothers, which they called simply “Ornamental Italic”.

Ornamental, yes, but there’s also a lot of action and attitude in this typeface. Please note that, due to the extreme slant of the characters, spacing in the font has been optimized for upper- and lowercase use.
