Mrs. Husband is a typeface I designed in the hand of my own mom, Mary Husband. She was an elementary school art teacher, a published artist, and an amazing cook. Her unique handwriting was adored and recognized by the people that knew her.

My mom passed away from breast cancer in 2018. I made this typeface to celebrate her.
It is only one weight, one style, and there are many characters missing, but it was a labour of love and I'm very proud of it.
