Pia Frauss has created amazingly cool fonts, and they’re free for private, educational, and (approved) non-profit use. Among these fonts is  the Jane Austen font, developed from samples of Austen’s handwriting;  interestingly, Frauss had to invent the X because  she couldn’t find any examples of this letter from Austen’s manuscripts!

The pic?  That’s one of Donald Hendricks’ phenomenal paper dolls!  Click the pic to go directly to the page for the Jane Austen doll.
