One of the more elegant script fonts available, this design is based on calligraphic handwriting called “Copperplate” because of the copper plates that it was etched into for reproduction. This face is not related to Copperplate [Gothic] by the American type designer, F.W. Goudy. The name Copperplate comes from the fact that writing masters used to hand-write their books and then send them to an engraver who recreated all the subtle details onto copper plates, which were then used to print handwriting books.
