1557 Civilite Granjon Pro is a historical and script font published by GLC Foundry.

Living from 1545 in Lyon (France), the famous punchcutter Robert Granjon created a typeface looking like his own hand script. The first book printed with this font, in 1557, was probably “Dialogues de la vie et de la mort” (by Innocent Ringhier. This is this complete typeface we are proposing here. It is a charming font with historical forms (s long, s final and others) and many ligatures, enriched with accented letters and other characters not existing in the original (Thorn, eth, lslash…), and a lot of alternates who permit a rich and varying typography. Warning : all characters appear with the 1500’s manual blackletter old style, especially letters “e” “r” or “h” alternate and some ending forms, and may be seem to be difficult to read for the first time, but quickly, it shall be very easy.

The font is containing all characters for Baltic, West (Including Celtic), East, North and East European language and Turkish.
