About Houston Pen Font Family
Early Texas patriots had fascinating penmanship. In researching Texas Hero years ago, I had occasion to pore over copies of letters by the likes of Stephen F. Austin, William B. Travis, Thomas J. Rusk, and others. Austin's hand was pretty messy. Young, brave Travis wrote his last during the Alamo siege. Rusk's suited my original task. But a couple other styles caught my eye -- among them the bold yet graceful strokes of Sam Houston, the prototypical Texas Hero. Houston Pen has a complete character set.

About Three Islands Press
Three Islands Press (a.k.a., “3IP”) is a small type foundry in Rockport, Maine. Specialties include historical replications, fine text type, old map fonts, and painstaking recreations of vintage and modern handwriting. 3IP is the d.b.a. of Brian Willson, who accidentally stumbled into type design in the 1990s after a career in print and broadcast journalism. He has absolutely no formal training—just a peculiar knack for making fonts that look like real handwriting and antique text materials. 3IP also represents the work of Swedish type designer Lars Bergquist, whose previous career was publishing of encyclopedias and reference literature in the days of lead type. Bergquist’s elegant, varied, multipurpose typefaces are as polished as any out there.
