The Paris blog over at highbrow newspaper Le Monde is profiling Roger Excoffon (1910-1983), renowned French graphic designer and typographer.
Excoffon is significant for a number of reasons including the fact that he worked as both a graphic designer - of which he was one of the first - and a fine artist.
For entirely personal reasons, one of Excoffon's typefaces, Banco, has become the bane of this writer's life. (In my font menu it's located above Baskerville which I use for writing).
The Le Monde blog post is in French. Obviously.
