As one of the most distinguished lettering artists of the 20th century, Meyer “Dave” Davison’s greatest contribution to the American visual landscape is arguably Davison Spencerian. The alphabet made its first appearance in Photo-Lettering’s 1946 catalog and remains a benchmark of the ornamental script genre. Thanks to the skillful hands of Mitja Miklav?i? and the tireless eyes of House Industries designers Ken Barber and Ben Kiel, we have preserved the poise and precision of Davison’s masterwork in this faithfully-rendered digital incarnation. From automotive exhaust accessories and pirate-themed wedding invites to New Orleans sissy bounce hip-hop CD covers and upmarket bivalve ambrosia packaging, Davison Spencerian offers sober sophistication and unparalleled flexibility.

Monograms, Titles or Play: Try Sobriquet

Photo-Lettering presents Sobriquet, a luxuriously spartan geometric sans serif alphabet from Jeremy Mickel. Try Sobriquet in its monochromatic glory or build dimension into any headline with a triple-layer version that features color options limited only by the visible color spectrum and the desire to inspire vertigo. There’s also an industriously inscriptional Sobriquet variant builds monograms from two or three letter combinations.
