Le Monde Journal by definition is intended for newspaper use & at small sizes. Its an economical and workshorse typeface adapted to any extrem condition of uses. Even though it has the same colour as Times, it appears more open. The reading flow has been made more fluent & less abrupt. The glyphs counters are bigger, as if they were “alluminating the interior.” The form, characterized by its serifs, remains embedded in our visual memory. Intermediate weights like Book can be considered as a grade supplement of the Regular. Italics accompany Le Monde Journal. With a more delicate design & a distinctive rhythm, they remain noticeable when used with the romans. Its companion, Le Monde Sans can extend your typographic palette.

Le Monde Journal is available in ten series in roman, italic. 700 glyphs by serie available in Pro versions which allows for the composition of numerous Latin-script European languages. Along with small caps available in the five weights, 4 sets of figures are provided – lining and oldstyle – in tabular and proportional widths, depending on the version. Miniscule lowercase, figures for automated fractions, are also included, and in addition a set of dingbats for everyday use in newspaper and magazine design. For beautiful page layout, use it in conjunction with Le Monde Livre for titling sizes.

This family was designed in 1994 as bespoke typeface family for the French newspaper Le Monde. The family is not used any more by this newspaper from November 2005.
