Designed by Gary Gillot for Rapitype/Graphic Systems Ltd, 1972. Comes in two weights: 55 and 85. [Simonson] There is also a multiline version called Embrionic Triline and an (outlined) Shaded. The bold weight (plus swash caps) was adopted for Berthold Fototypes and is shown in their E3 catalog (1982), with Ilja Feldstein credited as designer. According to Gillot, that’s a mistake. Also spelled Embryonic [Gillot, MuirMcNeil]. Lettergraphics showed it as Squirrel Swash.
