When I ran up against a stone wall in my designs of an album cover for a small record company years ago, I asked my father, Ted, to try some ideas. He sketched in the basis for Cursiva, which I then rendered and which Letraset eventually picked up as a font. Ted and I then brainstormed on the rest of the alphabet. It was digitized during the 90s and lives on as a blend of calligraphic and mechanically-executed styles. It’s been used very extensively and always appears fresh.
