What is the Mirabel™ font?
Mirabel is based on the handwriting of Beverly Bouwsma (Philip’s mother), which she developed in the 1930s in, as she puts it, an act of teenage rebellion.

The Mirabel fonts are available in all popular font formats, and the character sets cover a wide range of codepages, including Central and Eastern European languages, Esperanto, Turkish, Baltic, Celtic/Welsh.
