About: Normal and upright italic script fonts line a well-trodden path; left-leaning fonts (or "rightalics" as they're confusingly called), on the other hand, are a rarity. Here at Schizotype Fonts we don't like to do things too conventionally, so here's Backstroke, a laid back script with a unique voice.

With contextual alternates for start and end forms of certain characters, swash versions of L, Q and Z (surely the most used initial caps!), and a handful of stylistic sets, Backstroke is a restrained script. Stylistic sets are:

1. the start forms of i, j, m, n, and p are used always instead of only at word starts.

2. lower case ascenders get a whole lot loopier.

3. alternate versions of G, N and Y.

4. swash L, Q and Z.

5. swaps the default Polish script lslash for a more familiar version

While fonts that lean the wrong way may be a bit more difficult to fit into your layouts than boring old regular italics, they will reward you with their individuality. Why not give it a go?
