“Civilité in its modern adaptation was designed by Morris Benton in 1922 and cut by ATF in 1923–24. The original version was cut by Robert Granjon in 1557 to imitate the semi-formal writing then in vogue, and is believed to be the first cursive design cut in type.” — McGrew
Digital revivals of ATF’s Civilité include George Thomas’s Civilité MJ (Monotype, 2005) and Ralph M. Unger’s Civilite (profonts, 2008, used for the sample).
