The backdrop for the United States Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates featured the Bill of Rights set in Vivaldi, a script typeface that isn’t so much American as it is German or Canadian (designed by Friedrich Peter who was born in Germany and lives in Canada). More to the point, it brings to mind frilly wedding announcements more than it does the country’s founding documents. Perhaps some period-appropriate calligraphy or a Caslon would be more fitting.
