Designed by Laurence Bedoin-Collard and Heloísa Tissot, Écriture A is one half of the French Ministry of Education’s Modèles d’Écriture Scolaire A and B, introduced in 2013.
Inspired by the proportions of the Lettre Bâtarde, Écriture A is a cursive writing model with oval shapes, fully-joining lowercase and semi-joined uppercase letters, featuring spurs and extender loops.
Its upright variant is called Écriture A Romain, and its slanted variant is known as Écriture A Italique. Both come with simplified uppercase letters by default. A set of more cursive uppercase letters is available in alternatives known as Écriture A Romain Orné and Écriture A Italique Orné.
