Type Gallery – Grace

Font Designer: Elisabeth Megnet, 1995

Grace™ was designed by Elisabeth Megnet and appeared with Linotype in 1992. The basic style of Grace™ is based on the Gothic miniscule of the 13th century. It represents a modern philosophy held by Andre Guertler, Professor of Typography in Basel with whom Megnet once studied.
With this philosophy, calligraphy is not to be seen as a decorative art, and fonts created according to this tenet have far fewer ornamental strokes. They are eccentric, drawn out and almost bulky. Like Gothic forms, one of the predecessors of this font, Grace™ gives vertical lines a particular emphasis. This font is not meant for long texts but makes a distinctive impression in shorter texts or headlines.
Let the outstanding quality of this typeface convince you.
