An Élégie is tender and solemn poetry, but it could also refer to vocal music by the French composer Alfred Leslie Satie, a. k. a. Erik Satie. To create FF Elegie, Albert Boton looked at the handwriting of famous painters from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, such as Auriol, Benjamin Rabié, Mucha, and Lautrec. During that time, Japanese art was being discovered in the West. Many of these painters wrote with brushes. Albert Boton made his first drawings for FF Elegie in 1993, with a Brause ink pen. The result is a lively handwritten family with Roman, Italic, Swash, and Ornaments.
FF Elegie supports 63 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
