Steinweiss
                Script
   These fonts began began their journey to becoming realized when I was asked by Taschen Publishing to do cover lettering for the huge edition they were putting together on the work of Alex Steinweiss—“The Inventor of the Modern Album Cover”. While working on this project, I realized that there was great potential for a font that was designed in the spirit of Steinweiss’ famous “scrawl”. I was fortunate enough to be able to contact the Steinweiss family through Taschen Publishing, and get the official Steinweiss approval for “Steinweiss Script”. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from its sale will go directly to the man himself: Alex Steinweiss.
