ABOUT







Louis Gauthier

French type designer (1916-1993) who made Gauthier (Imprimerie Nationale, 1969) and Luce (Imprimerie Nationale, 1963). The imprimerie nationale, where he worked, had not made any new type since Jaugeon in 1905. Its director in 1948, Robert Blanchot, decided to create a new family, and gave the project to Louis Gauthier, punchcutter at Deberny&Peignot. Romans and italics (in 14, 18 and 24 sizes) were completed between 1969 and 1980, with the aid of punchcutters Michel Portron and Jacques Camus. The typeface has an "incised" style, halfway between garalde and sans serif.
