handwriting
Рукописные шрифты (Script, Handwriting)
    Собирательное название группы шрифтов [упорядоченное множество знаков определенной системы письма], по рисунку имитирующих чей-то почерк или каллиграфический стиль, но не относящихся к готическим [средневековый шрифт] и древнерусским, которые выделены в отдельные группы. Рукописные шрифты делятся в зависимости от пишущего инструмента на шрифты, имитирующие письмо ширококонечным пером, остроконечным пером, кистью и другими инструментами (карандаш, фломастер, шариковая ручка и т.д.). Кроме того, рукописные шрифты могут быть связные (где каждая буква соединяется с соседними) и несвязные (где каждая буква стоит отдельно). Возможны также промежуточные (полусвязные) формы, где соединяется только часть букв или буквы соединяются только с одной стороны. Рукописные шрифты применяются для акциденции [шрифты крупнокегельного (акцидентного) набора] и для набора учебной литературы (прописи).
