Write like Jane Austen

Have you ever wished you could write like Jane Austen? Now you can – at least in appearance. The plot, characters and wit still depend on you, but Quillblog has found a website that provides a font based on the handwriting of Jane Austen. The font includes the basic upper and lower case letters, plus a couple extras such as accented letters, percent signs, and, surprisingly, an @ symbol. (For those who wish to give their e-mail address an Austenian look.) Austen’s handwriting ranks number 24 on the site’s top 100, which also includes fonts inspired by Frédéric Chopin and Salvador Dali.
