LS Iris - handwritten music font

Post by benwiggy »

I'm not a big fan of musical handwritten fonts, but this one by Luis Salgueiro is one of the few that I actually quite like. (If that isn't damning it with faint praise!)

His blog is here:

and the font can be bought from Abraham Lee's Music Type Foundry.

It's more akin to a decent calligraphic hand and less 'crayony' than many others, IMO.

And it's yet another SMuFL-compatible font - though also has the 'legacy' glyphs for old applications. :lol:

It's very nice and in the same vein as Odod's Arensky font but has fuller note heads, which is better. But I prefer the Arensky clefs and quarter rests.

I’d like to know this as well. Last I heard, it wasn’t...
