Inspiring Vintage Script Typography

Inspiring Vintage Script TypographyIt's been a while since I posted any inspiration, so I thought I'd share with you these snippets of "retro" script from "vintage," advertisements and other ephemera. I don't know if it's just me or if other typography enthusiasts designate a large portion of space (virtual and physical) to items loved for their beautiful type, but these bits are from a little treasure trove on my hard-drive simply labled "Letters - Cursive." : )

I gave them a little style for your sake, as my stored version is a simple black and white bitmap, being that I saved them just for their typography. Though they wont dazzle you like the three-dimensional art popular today and they are not monumental works of type, I pride myself on posting inspiring pieces that are unique and, well, inspiring. Not to mention they are my own personal treasures.

I do not claim a copyright or trademark to any particular slogan or brand name appearing in these pieces nor do I intend to infringe upon any that I am unaware of. Just for the love of type, these are some random bits of inspiring retro script.
