The handwriting of famous songwriters have been turned into fonts for aspiring musicians to channel the masterful lyricism of those before them.

The font developers want new songwriters to draw inspiration from the likes of John Lennon, David Bowie and Kurt Cobain, saying “writing lyrics with the handwriting of influential songwriters helps imagination to develop. Being in the mood of Bowie, Cobain, Cohen, Gainsbourg, Lennon, might be purely imaginative… but that’s precisely the point.”

The fonts have been created based on actual writing samples from each artist. Here, for example, are some of the hand-written letters of John Lennon that have provided the basis for the Lennon font:
