Americas most famous carver of inscriptions, including those at the John F. Kennedy Memorial in Arlington National Cemetery, John Benson modeled this friendly, casual script after his own handwriting and gave it the name of his beloved niece. Although based on the cancelleresca style of 16th-century Italian writing masters, Alexa has no swash terminals or ligatures. The absence of these features and its pronounced slope give this 1995 Adobe Originals release a distinctly modern look for lively lines and pages. Use Alexa at both text and display sizes.
