Whoops, typo! That first sentence should have read: "Looks Luc(as) de Grootesque".

;)

Can anybody compare it with Corpid Bold Italic, please? My LucasFonts catalogue is at home.
Sorry I'm so useless these days, but somebody took off with our copy of the FontBook at work, so my access to printed specimens is somewhat limited. :-(

Yves, just go to my Alphabet section, then Free specimen page, and fill out the form, you will receive a catalog with everything.

Sorry, to not be distributed by FontShop distributor and any others, its by choice.

:-)

take my other post as joke indeed.

Hey, I'm not connected to FontShop anymore, and I wouldn't mind anyway. I really like your place: you've got a well-defined identity and a selection of delightful typefaces.

As about getting jokes: I usually get them, and I've got an elephant hide, as Stephen and Hrant can attest (unfortunately the jokes in this thread aren't funny anymore because I changed my portrait since then).

Well, my sense of humor needs work, but my skin is titanium. From stopping bullets with it. ;-)

Speaking of de Groot, I really liked how he took Folha (commissioned for the titling of a Brazilian newspaper), made it more "incised" (like the French like it), and used it to satisfy the commission from Le Monde for their titles.

BTW, Parisine Plus is one of my fav JFP fonts.

Which has earned to it here the gentle nickname of "Le Folha".

Remake, remodel, recycle...

What does "Le Folha" mean?

Yeah, de Groot is very good at re-using (and interpolating), which is fine by me as long as the source is good, and his always is. And what's very refreshing is that he promotes that aspect of his work method, while many others hide it. BTW, the Le Monde face is called Floris (after his son).

What does "Le Folha" mean?

Nothing more than its constituent parts. Well,
for me - and maybe two or three others - it
connotates that, for what was originally a
commissioned work, Floris is a bit too close,
perhaps?

I actually know the lady who was the art director
at Folha de S

I could ask her opinion.

In fact I think she wouldn't give a damn. :-)

Oh, I get it, you call Floris "Le Folha"... Funny.
I think Le Monde would mind any closeness more than the Brazilian predecessor, but apparently they don't.

Unger:
In fact I recently saw a comparison of three of his news faces, and at the same point size and column width the linebreaks throughout a piece of a number of paragraphs were nearly totally identical! That tells me he has an "ideal" of individual letter-widths in his head, and for a while now.

I think when your oeuvre has a lot of uniformity it means you're a thinking man, as opposed to being overly market-driven.

Looks Luc(as) de Grootish. But it isn't TheSans: I checked.
