Write A Song In John Lennon’s Handwriting

I sent a birthday card to a friend who I haven’t seen or spoken to in 10 years. She said the minute she saw my card in her mailbox she knew it was from me. She said she would recognize my handwriting anywhere, I was amazed. Was my handwriting that distinctive?

I don’t think so, but apparently it made some impact on her. I guess that’s why songwriters are now loving a digital project called “Songwriters Fonts” because they can download typefaces created from dead rock legends and write songs using their handwriting style. Some of the rockers are: Kurt Cobain, David Bowie and John Lennon. There are so many others.

Songwriters fonts were designed to give musicians inspiration, motivation and imagination. Creating a composition in the handwriting of a musical super star could possibly give someone the impetus to write the next big hit.The company clearly states the fonts are for personal use only.

This is what the promotional material looks like. Create a song for me.
