Papyrus is a typeface found primarily in ancient Egyptian art. Chris Costello designed The Papyrus, a versatile, free handwritten script font. At 23, Costello created this font in 1982 after finishing college. He published this font in 1983 through the Letraset company. ITC (International Typeface Corporation) is now the current owner of the Papyrus font. The font was inspired by the murals found in ancient Egyptian temples.
It took six months to create this font, made with calligraphy pens and textured paper. With 56 language support and 387 characters, the Papyrus font has several distinctive features, such as rough edges, irregular curves, and higher horizontal strokes in the capitals. It has only one style, which is Papyrus Regular. It is now widely used and known for its distinctive typeface. Furthermore, the Papyrus font spans multiple languages, making it difficult for other fonts to recreate a similar effect.
