Peignot

Until just moments ago, I discovered I've only known Cassandre's Peignot as 'Penguin'. The first and last time I used it was 1997... I think this is because of a Corel version of the face? I'm interested in more details about the 're-master' and am finding it rather irritating that all Google roads to 'penguin + typography' lead to Jan Tschichold... How did 'penguin' get bundled and distributed, who's properly responsible for it, and where have you seen it used awkwardly?

where have you seen it used awkwardly?

It would be easier to tell where it wasn’t used awkwardly! ;-)

It's important to take into account that Peignot was
nothing short of a full-fledged alphabet reform effort.
Even Cassandre's son didn't seem to grasp this when
writing his biography.
