Please help, I'm looking for the long lost "monotype Corsiva" twin sister :)
I've attached the original letter, the Corsiva example, and a superimposed one.
Please note the letters have been stretched, yes, but even stretched, the Corsiva does not match 100% : the leg and foot are different.
Anyone up for this challenge ?
