It's time for another edition of Name That Font! I have two examples--I'm not sure if they're the exact same font, but they're a similar style, and I would be happy with anything that's close to these examples (example 1
, example 2
). What the Font isn't helping because the letters are connected so it can't recognize individual letters. And....go!

Back when people still used handwriting for pretty much everything, what did they do for acronyms and initialisms? I'm just having a hard time imagining the Palmer uppercase forms being used to spell out NATO or AT&T or the like. Any pictorial examples would be especially appreciated.

Black beret, with white cursive/handwriting text on it in French(I can't remember what it said). I've seen two people with these, brought back from Paris, but I couldn't find them over there myself. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Where would I find them next time? [more inside]

As a part of my academic research, I'm digging into the Edison Papers
, and finding (mostly handwritten) archival materials from the late 19th century. I'm embarrassed to admit I can barely read the cursive handwriting of Edison and his colleagues. Does anyone know where I might find samples of 19th-century script to help me learn how to read this archival material? [more inside]

Bad Pen-me-ship Filter: I'd like to find a version of college ruled paper that has the faint middle line to keep me on track with letter formation. I'd really like the college ruled because it always looks funny when I am in a management meeting writing on first grader's training paper. [more inside]

I want to be able to write an impressive signature, much in the style of some aristocratic 19th century English speaker. But I can't find any images collections with these kinds of signatures, in order look at them and get ideas or mimic them for my own signature. Surely the Hive-Mind knows if there's a source out there with this kind of info?
