Interesting! I remember there was a font available in 2013 based on LC's handwriting in the Old Ideas album.
Some discussion about that here -

The links don't work anymore but I think Cohencentric still uses it.

Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!

Citing legal issues, the designers of a font based on Leonard Cohen’s handwriting have taken their creation and the website on which it used to appear offline.

SongwriterFonts.com says it created digital facsimiles of “to inspire musicians and the next generation of songwriters to put their imagination at work.”

But after releasing the Cohen font as well as equivalents for John Lennon, David Bowie, Kurt Cobain and Serge Gainsbourg, the website says it was contacted by “intellectual property rights owners.” The decision was then made to shut down the site.

Musicians looking to emulate Cohen will now have to focus on the majesty of words instead of the shape of their letters. As they put in those extra hours, they may want their coffee darker.
