Malagua was originally released in 1999 and has been revised several times since then, culminating in this new release with improved weighting and additional special characters.
MAlagua is based on examples of rough hand lettering from the 17th century. It has characteristics in common with some of our other colonial period fonts like Allegheny, Queensland and Hesperides but is much more irregular, with a shaky, rough appearance. It’s also part of our Colonial Fonts package.
One of the special features of Malagua is that it includes alternate versions of many of the characters so you can vary the appearance of words so that it looks more like what you type is hand written.
