Waltograph is the name of a freeware typeface based on the lettering of the Walt Disney logotype.

Description[edit]

Several versions exist, some under its original title of "Walt Disney Script". The typeface is not, as many assume, based on the actual handwriting of Walt Disney; rather, it is an extrapolation of the Walt Disney Company's corporate logotype, which was based on a stylized version of Walt Disney's autograph. First released in 2000, Walt Disney Script was continuously updated and eventually renamed Waltograph in 2004.

Reception[edit]

Although the project is unofficial and not affiliated with nor endorsed by the Walt Disney Company, it has been used by the company on occasions.[1]

One writer remarked that "When Mickey Mouse sits down to tap out his memoirs, we bet the title page will be set in Waltograph."[2] Like the informal font Comic Sans, Waltograph gets rave reviews from many, but not all audiences.[3][4]
