You Can Now Download Famous Rockers Handwriting as Fonts
How would you like to write songs like David Bowie, Kurt Cobain or John Lennon? Well, you can't, but you CAN use their handwriting style in a new font. NME.com says the Songwriters Font project was developed from handwritten notes by famous rock stars.
“Songwriting is about inspiration,” say Songwriters Font project creators Julien Sens and Nicolas Damiens. “Write songs as the ones who inspired you before. The songwriters fonts have been created to give musicians inspiration.”
“Writing lyrics with the handwriting of influential songwriters helps imagination to develop. Being in the mood of Bowie, Cobain, Cohen, Gainsbourg, Lennon, might be purely imaginative… but that’s precisely the point."
I’m not quite sure a font has the power to make someone like me write lyrics like John Lennon on acid, but they’re still pretty cool. Somehow, the fonts seem to fit each artist’s persona – which apparently is a real thing.
