Flea market Typo 2013

Flea market Typo 2013

The flea market Typo 2013 (Puces typo 2013) is an event organised by the Rencontres internationales de Lure in Paris. A good place to meet lots of local typophiles, graphic designers and so on. We are happy to participate this year and to join a bunch of independent publishers, foundries, designers who will propose surprises and bargains for all tastes and all budgets.

In use: Modern Art Club

Apolline in use by Amélie Lebleu. Modern Art Club

Amélie Lebleu is a graphic designer in love with typography. On her portfolio we can find quite good exhibit catalogs and exhibit identities. For Musée du Luxembourg she opted for a real typographical bias: rather than designing a catalog including reproductions of paintings, she deliberately and solely focused on typography, a unique typeface, a unique Apolline weight but two colors.

Mislab, a new design by Xavier Dupré

Mislab by Xavier Dupré for Typofonderie

Referred to as Egyptian’s in the early years of the nineteenth century, today slab serifs are primarily used in display sizes but seldom used in body text. With Mislab, Xavier Dupré has designed a brighter and more legible slab serif than most. Mislab aptly combines the strength of a slab serif with the lightness of a sans serif. Bold and thick serifs make for strong impact in display uses while performing extremely well under the most stressful body text conditions.
