Script Font Identification Guide

Part 13 - ELEGANT Category
Elaborate or Ornate Script (Continued)

These script fonts include the most flamboyant forms of Formal Scripts, with initial letters that loop and swirl. Often there are swash-like lower-case letter variants with long swooping terminals. These scripts are meant to be impressive and showy. Some of them have a number of less formal qualities, and may include some examples of antique and modern handwriting, if they also have graceful elegance.
