GLC Foundry" is a French little foundry starting from 2008.
Its purpose is to set up historic fonts inspired from dated, real and definite documents, or inspired by incomplete ones or by accurate style.
Fonts are complemented to allow a contemporary use, with accented characters and those mainly inexistent in early fonts. We make an effort to add abbreviations, ligatures, contracted letters and so on, peculiar to each concerned period. Punctuation signs are always reproduced in their original faces. We have a strong attachment to always keep the existent poetic imperfections of the models.
