Reconstruction of Nikola Tesla’s handwriting

If eyes are the mirrors of the soul, then handwriting is its trace on paper, its graphic expression.

The idea was to make a typographic script based on the samples of Nikola Tesla's handwriting from available documents, a digital font for computer use that would largely correspond to his handwriting, and at the same time be legible enough to be used.

Sources 

Authors had three sources at our disposal: the notes from Colorado Springs from 1899, in ink, in English; a correspondence with Mr. Radosavljević from 1914 in Serbian, in ink and pencil, in the Cyrillic script; one telegram, also sent to Mr. Radosavljević, in pencil, in Serbian, in the Latin script; and a long letter written to Pola Fotić in 1939, where Tesla describes his childhood, in pencil, in English.
