Subject:        A Typographical Query

I am a typographer and am thinking about designing a typeface from
Shakespeare's handwriting. There is a font out there already but it's
way to pretty to be the one I understand is Shakespeare's.

I believe that the only sample of his writing is the signature on his
will.  Does anybody know if this true or not? And if it is not, do you
know where I can find any other samples?

Please feel free to email me directly.

    Thank you,
    Mary-Anne King
