Lamar Pen gets its name from Mirabeau Buonaparte Lamar, whose penmanship it's modeled after. Lamar, born in Georgia in 1798, migrated in 1835 to Texas, where he supported -- and the following year fought for -- the then-Mexican province's independence. He stuck around, too, becoming Texas's first vice-president and second president. Specimens included his 1835 journal (courtesy of Rice University) and letters dating from 1836 until 1847. A bold, legible face that demonstrates Lamar's refined Southern roots, Lamar Pen has an ample x-height and an uppercase fourish or two. It has a single, medium-dark weight and full character set, including several alternate letterforms and common (English) words. The OpenType release adds many additional ligatures, standard and contextual alternates, true fractions, lining and tabular figures, crossouts, ink blots, and Central/Eastern European alphabets.
