Born in 1968, Peter Nevins has been striving, since then, to make elegant but unpretentious works of all kinds.
His posters and paintings play off of one another, bringing a fine art element to the one, and a strong design element to the other, respectively.
All of Peter’s fonts were developed using pen and ink and honed over time before being commited to the digital format.
His current favorite color is olive green and his favorite animal is his sweetheart, Tara.
Our collection of fonts from Peter Nevins includes three original designs: Nevins Hand, Nevins Avant and Exotique. All three show an Art Nouveau influence. Nevins Hand is a rough, hand-drawn printing style with block serifs and an Art Nouveau or Arts and Crafts shape to the characters. Nevins Avant is in the tradition of Art Nouveau sans-serif poster lettering. Exotique is the most unusual of the fonts, with a truly unique look, reminiscent of the lettering of Alphons Mucha, but with a more sinister attitude.
All of our new Nevins fonts are available singly at a special introductory price of $15 each, or as part of a complete package with all three fonts for $39. You can order by phone from 1-800-797-8973 or you can purchase the single fonts or the whole package online and get quick email delivery. Just CLICK HERE
David Nalle is the founder of The Scriptorium and is our lead designer of original fonts and adapter of historical source material. Dave got his start in calligraphy when he was a child, studying old manuscripts and duplicating the lettering he liked. In college he paid expenses by lettering bizarre things, including signs for fraternity parties and even pledge paddles.
In 1991 Dave started designing fonts based on his own hand lettering from old magazine titles, hand lettered signs and maps. Since then he has produced scores of completely original fonts, plus a huge selection of fonts based on historic type and unique hand lettering, creating the backbone of the Scriptorium collection.
Dave now lives in Manor Texas with his wife Patricia, his daughter Caroline, two dogs, a cat, a goose and four ducks. He enjoys swimming, disc golf and tennis and teaches the occasional college history course as well.
