Script fonts are designed to mimic the fluidity, capriciousness and irregularities of handwriting, and thus, they appear to have a congenial and organic aesthetic when juxtaposed against the systematic and precise characteristics of, for example, traditional sans-serifs. The free script fonts in this collection are strong, powerful and ready for professional use, and they’re free.
