Givry was created by Tom Grace and released by TypeTogether. Givry contains 1 style. p > The bâtarde flamande is a design of writing used primarily in France and present-day Belgium in the 15th century. The style shares an origins with other composing styles traditionally grouped as blackletter- fraktur, textura, rotunda, and schwabacher. It had actually evolved, nevertheless, into an æsthetic far eliminated from its relatives.

While high-contrast in nature, the bâtarde flamande is more delicate and dynamic than the austere and condensed fraktur and textura. Quick curves lack the rigidity of the schwabacher and rotunda. Flair through swashes is thematic, as are the variations in letterforms. The streaming rhythm, achieved through a letterform axis that is total a little rightward, is most noticable in the hallmark f and long s. Round forms are merged together for economy of space. It is a writing hand that, with its syncopation and fluidity, produces a vibrance uncharacteristic of other blackletters.

Givry has been developed in the spirit of the bâtarde flamande. It melds the particular characteristics put together from the works of the design's prominent scribes-Jean Fouquet, Loyset Liédet, and Jean Bourdichon. While appropriate as a classy and energetic display face, Givry was developed for setting continuous text. The result of many improvements and adjustments is the preservation of the design's irregular nature, along with a consistency that continuous-text typography needs. Thoroughly investigated and developed in OpenType format for a wealth of typographic functions and assistance for more than forty languages, Givry is neither acquired nor speculative, but traditionally accurate.

Of the many blackletter digital typefaces offered, fraktur and all its connotations have become agent. In contrast, the bâtarde flamande is basically non-existent in digital form, and has till now been overlooked.

Givry supplies designers and anybody looking for typographic expression a lively, fragile, and striking side to blackletter.
