“Le Griffe is based on the 16th century humanist writing style” as “an attempt at mechanically reproducible letterforms demonstrating the timeless qualities of pre-Gutenberg hand lettering.” One of the winners in the 1973 Letraset International Typeface Competition. Comes with numerous swash alternates including initial and terminal forms.
ITC’s digital version has only some of the alternates. Elsner+Flake’s is more complete, but offers the alternates in separate styles.
