Originally designed by Alan Meeks in 1984 as Kestrel for Letraset.
Mickey Rossi created a sloppy, limited, and unauthorized digital version and made it available for free as Ballpark Weiner (Subflux, 2005). Ralph Unger added a more sophisticated but likewise unauthorized version with a wide language support incl. Cyrillics, and named it Falkner (RMU, 2011). In 2011, Alan Meeks released his own official digitization as Kestrel Script. Ballpark Weiner is the only version to include the original alternate ‘A’.
