I think Chopin Script is more similar.

It is difficult to explain.
And my next script is more difficult to explain what is the origin.

What IS your next script?
Oooooh, working on a new font?
As your fan, I can't wait, if it is true.

Chopin Script is not the legit font. The legit font is Polonaise - like in Chopin's Polonaises....

Maybe one day you'll learn the story. The script capital letters where used as the opening letters for a book - a woman in Sweden used her own handwriting. From that, a font was developed called Polonaise.

Chopin is a rip off. Malvolio says the author is a mod here. I'd like to hear how he came up with it. Meaning the design of those beautiful capital letters.

Not a rip-off, Claude said so.

Phil Martin, the designer has passed away. I know he was sued for taking the woman's capital letters and making a font from it. I do not know the financial outcome from it, but as you see Polonaise lives on. (PS I had the pleasure of taking a type course with Phil Martin - he is missed.)

Hum, but why do we keep saying Chopin Script is a rip-off ? So if two persons decided to do a font from the same handwriting, I really don't see where's the problem ? Both fonts are different, as far as I know, so I really don't see the point in questioning this.

Because Phil Martin designed it in 1977.

Care to discuss how you think it is different?

I'm just curious. I've written to Claude to see how he came up with his design.

But, you said he designed it from a woman's handwriting, didn't he ?

Sep 09, 2012 at 17:16

Only the caps - and only a few of them. As you know, in books - not every letter of the alphabet is used in an opening for the chapter. It was his inspiration.

Jackie, we can't compare by just looking at the preview images, can we ? The dots are different, I saw them in the past. Claude has explained many times how he came to this font, and even in the comments here on dafont.
