Nestor ScriptLittle is known about Nestor Script… Barnhart Bros. & Spindler advertised it in the June 1898 edition of The Inland Printer. It was probably designed by Ernst Lauschke and/or Julius Schmohl, who assigned several patents to BBS in 1897-1900 including two other stylish scripts, Oliphant (1895) and Pisa ( 1897).

Star THP Partner Robert Donona intends to digitize it for posterity and has been furnished working specimens.

Nestor Script is finished and renamed Nestoria Script.
See enclosed sample.
