ABOUT







Pierre Louis Wafflard

Apprentice of J. Gill&aeacute;. He took over the Briquet (or Briquet and Loyson, or Cappon, or Veuve Cappon) foundry in 1785, and ran it in Paris until 1837. Its work can be found in Épreuves des caractères anglais de la fonderie de Vafflard, à Paris (Paris, 1811). This publication shows nothing really original. Bill Troop worked at some point on a typeface called Vafflard's First Manner Type in the 1990s.
