1871 Victor Hugo is a historic and script typeface published by GLC Foundry.

The popular French poet and author Victor Hugo (1802-1885) used a number of handwriting style, in some cases almost illegible. His manuscripts destinated to be published was composed using a script style, to be legible plainly. We have used script style manuscripts from the final part of his life (from 1859 to 1881) to reconstuct this present typeface, as one exemple of the Victor Hugo's hands.

It is a "Pro" font containing Western (consisting of Celtic) and Northern European, Icelandic, Baltic, Eastern, Central European and Turquish diacritics. The many alternates and ligatures enable to made the font looking as carefully as possible to a real hand. Using an OTF software, the features enable to differ automaticaly nearly each character of a word without anything to do but to choose contextual alternates and basic ligatures and/or stylistic alternates options.
