Designed by Jean François Porchez, Le Monde Sans is a sanserif based on Le Monde Journal — a practice that become commonplace from early nineties. Designed originally in 1994 for the Le Monde newspapers, it was expended over the years to the large family we know today. As many others members of the extensive Le Monde family, Le Monde Sans was revamped for the relaunch of Typofonderie website. Le Monde Sans Pro features now a “traditional g” (access via OpenType features) in addition to the usual 1994’s g. Le Monde Sans is offered in numerous weights — nine in total, in roman, italic to meet all kinds of situations. Several intermediate weights added such as the Book and ExtraDemi have been added. It will help designers to select the best weights depending their needs, from glossy paper printing to high resolution screen as the recent iPad and its retina screen.

The design of Le Monde Sans continues the basic common structure found in the members of the Le Monde family: its proportions, a relatively narrow width, a fairly oblique axis, etc. The typographer can, at all times, switch between Sans & Journal or Courrier without any disruption in the composition. 700 glyphs by style are available in Pro versions which allows setting of numerous Latin-script European languages. Along with small caps available in the nine weights, four sets of figures are provided — lining and oldstyle — in tabular and proportional widths, depending on the version. In addition a set of dingbats for everyday use in newspaper and magazine design is included.

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.
