1871 Victor Hugo Regular


The famous French poet and novelist Victor Hugo (1802-1885) used several handwriting style, sometimes almost illegible. His manuscripts destinated to be published was written using a script style, to be legible clearly. We have used script style manuscripts from the final part of his life (from 1859 to 1881)to reconstuct this present font, as one exemple of the Victor Hugo’s hands.

It is a “Pro” font containing Western (including Celtic) and Northern European, Icelandic, Baltic, Eastern, Central European and Turquish diacritics.  The numerous alternates and ligatures allow to made the font looking as closely as possible to a real hand. Using an OTF software, the features allow to vary automaticaly almost each character of a word without anything to do but to select contextual alternates and standard ligatures and/or stylistic alternates options.
