|Bookman and Bookman Swash|
Bickham Swash was designed in 1997 by type designer and calligrapher Richard Lipton. Lipton was inspired by English round hand from the 18thcentury. This typeface and other similar ones are prevalent on wedding invitations and other formal correspondence, and would be perfect for your next set of invitations to a Governor’s Ball.
Eloquent Swash, designed by Jason Walcott, is the last example we have for you today, but the internet is full of examples, and if you have the time or inclination, you can choose a favorite starting font and design your own embellishments to create your very own!
