French

Hi everyone,

Can anybody help me to find this font ?
It's used in the french movie 'Carambolages' directed by Marcel Bluwal in 1963.

Thanks in advance !

I know this one is a classic, but do not know which one. :(

Thanks so much in advance to whoever replies!

Just released a nice set of numbers, rescued from a 1838 Type Specimen Book issued by the Fonderie Clement, Bruxelles.

The 5 is my favorite, the upper part is unique.
I fell in love with it. And so I decided to digitize them all.
I hope you enjoy them! I made them with love.

I'm not completely sure, but I think that Clement was a Didot's apprentice, who then started his own foundry. If anyone has more info on that, I will appreciate it.

Cheers,
Pablo

Hello,
have been endlessly searching for these but to no avail, if you could help I would be greatly thankful ;-)

I found this picture online and I really would like the font. Can anyone identify it?

Hello,
I am looking for this typeface.. It's French.. contemporary to Didot.. special characteristic is the lowercase g.
If anyone has ever seen it before somewhere, please tell me.
Thanks

I'm looking for a more simple and clean looking Art Nouveau lettering, preferably relating to late 1800 (or so) France and would value any input you may offer. Auriol's namesake font looks a bit too mych like a stencil for my project. Something like DeVinne or Letterhead's Billhead might work?

Hello Typophile,

anyone out there who can give some information about this font?
Looks custom to me and reminds me somehow of M/M Paris.

Hmm.

Hi,
I recently started doing bilingual graphic design and am being faced with the trouble of typesetting in French. I feel I need to know more about the rules of French typesetting.
Anyone know of a good book I could buy or an online resource to get me started?
Thanks in advance for your help

Looking for the ID of this curly display font used for the lettering of Jacques Tati’s “Maison de Jour de Fête” movie.

It’s definitely a digital font, not hand lettered, because of the identical glyph shapes and use for the lettering of the (digitally remastered) movie trailer.

No succes at MyFonts’ “What the Font”.

It looks like Vegacute, but isn’t.

LeFrançois is a typeface in OpenType format based on 3 series of capitals.
It seems to be classical but some glyphs show that it's not so conventional.
It's seems to be a typical French type, that's why its name is LeFrançois (with the accent please !)
With a particular work on kerning (about 5000 !) and ligatures, you'll be able to compose words as logotypes thanks to capitals and small caps.
It will be soon available at http://www.editions205.fr

I'm trying to identify a font used in the body text of Les Misérables I by Victor Hugo, from a "folio classique", Edition d'Yves Gohin, ISBN 2-07-040922-8, copyrighted 1973 and 1995.

The most unique thing about this font is the italic "f", which has a slightly curved, almost straight edge on the bottom. This characteristic alone eliminates most famous serif fonts, I think. Also, the italic "b", ""d", "l" letters begin from the top with a curved, tapered hook. The italic "z" resembles the Times, as well as the italic "v".

Hi everybody,

I have a general designquestion that is more related to native french speakers and writers. I'm doing a small research on school scripts and i want to know what is the tought or prefered Version of the /OE, especially the uppercase version in french school. I made some combination which you can see in the picture, but i don't know which one is the right one.

Thank You.

Hullo,

I have not seen the info here yet, so I just wanted to let you know that a new French foundry launched last week (I am not related to the foundry - I just rather like the concept and the fonts): the Bureau des Affaires Typographiques. You can find all info in English here:

IMVHO I think Acier (a revival of Cassandre's type by Jean-Baptiste Levée) will be of interest to many of you since I have seen it (or a closely related character) used in a number of vintage London Underground font.

Found this marvelous peace of script, but identifont and whatsthefont didn find anything alike.
And searching google for original Beauvoir logo didnt help either.

Any one know what font this is? Was told it was used for a closed restaurant in Los Angeles...so we know the font exists...
any help would be appreciated...

thanks!

Bree was chosen as main typeface for body and titles in Deco, an ethical and ecologically aware French interior magazine.

In most cases, the body text actually uses Bree's alternate characters to ensure best legibility.

It was designed by Ljubomir Djordjevic from the French design studio Commeunarbre.
