I wondered the same thing. There is yet another style of C clef. I've seen this other style in French music. It is a more boxy style that is somewhere in-between the modern 'B' type C clef and the "French" style 'K' type. There is also another type of bass clef that I think of as "English" because it shows up in British works (Elgar for example). It spirals in the opposite direction of the "normal" bass clef that is used by LilyPond and it has more turns.

As for the hand-written look; this has been discussed in the past and, if I recall correctly, it was deemed inconsistent with the goals of LilyPond (to look like engraved music).

Much as I hate it, a lot of forties music I come across has that hand-written look, though I strongly suspect it was engraved ...

So looking both hand-written and engraved at the same time probably isn't incompatible :-)

At the end of the day, it's just another font, isn't it?
