p.s. oops! it is Le Mistral n.m. - no 'e'...
as for Marseille (s?)
Imitating his own handwriting, Roger Excoffon created a fully cursive (linking) apparent hand-script, originally for typesetting, now for digital reproduction. The capitals do not fully link in the computerised version, as was the case with the original, although the lower-case version obviously does. Originally this objective was achieved with various 'ligatures' - fiddly little graphic linkages for particular conjunctions of letters.
'Mistral' is as French as 'Helvetica' is Swiss!
