I spotted this pretty thing in the West Side Spirit, a community newspaper. The font is Thirsty Script Black by Ryan Martinson of Yellow Design Studio. The MyFonts website describes it as having a new look with a vintage vibe. At $20, it’s a bargain.
I was doing some educational research on the Web, when I ran across a cool, swashy script being used on a magazine cover. I didn’t recognize it, so I asked over at WhatTheFont. One of the mavens there identified it as Scriptina Pro. Apparently designed and distributed for free by Fredrick “Apostrophe” Nader, it’s been cleaned up and extended by CheapProFonts. You can get for free from MyFonts.com. As you can see, it’s gorgeous.
