Inspired by 16th, or maybe even 15th century "French Ronde" script, named after my friend from Japan
French Ronde was a bit later. It found it's origin in the 16th century Civilité.
Thanks so much. I drew this typeface as an ode of sorts to French Script.
It is not actually based on any one particular style of type, font,nor even any specific reference material... I just drew it with the intent of making an upright, connected and elaborate (for me anyways!) style of script.
Even though this font is not traditional, I think the French script influence is obvious... so I did try to reasearch this style of type, but of the originating typefaces (Civilite as you pointed out) I can find about a sentence. And that sentence is usually on myfonts.com
I would love to learn more about it, I really would. I hope to find some actual/physical literture on the subject.
Thanks so much for your help. I hope people like this font.
shweeet :) cute and girly. Again...the kerning, the pain :) Would be a real bestseller on myfonts if you add few dozens of ligatures.
by the way, the "h" looks a bit out of place.... same applies to y and b.

may be able to help you to find literature.
Thanks so much for your comment. I agree there are some aspects to this font that seem to be of a different style than the font as a whole. There were so many things I wanted to include. Definitely a learning experience and I am overall happy with how it turned out.
BTW - Were you referring to the uppercase or lowercase, or both even? -Thanks
Alright, thanks so much.
I saw something similar as a style on this expensive French champagne Nicolas Feuillatte
Nice. There are some similar aspects about them.
