Hi Typophiles!

I'm starting a new type proyect, trying to interpret scans of books printed by Simon de Colines. My question is: Has somebody done this before? Does it worth it?

I really like the printer history and letterforms.

Angry face

See starting proyect PDF here

Thanks and kind Regards.
F.

Émilie Rigaud named her typeface Coline to honor this printer. Perhaps she knows some places to research.

Kay Amert from the University of Iowa did a presentation on Simon de Colines and Geofroy Troy at ATypI Vancouver 2003. See: http://old.atypi.org/09_Vancouver/40_timetables/view_presentation_html%3...

As I remember it she focused on interpreting the letterforms of both.

Fernando — That’s not really going to be possible. You may have already discovered: Kay Amert passed away a few years ago. R.I.P.
