ABOUT







Louis-René Luce

Type designer, punchcutter and engraver at the Imprimerie Nationale from about 1740 until 1770. He was the engraver of king Louis XV, who took possession of all of Luce's work in 1773, i.e., 7 typefaces, 8 sets of initial caps, some vignettes, some ornaments, and 15 "poetic" typefaces. Three of the typefaces were recut in 1955 and 1963 by Jacques Camus, Louis Gauthier and Christian Paput. Luce is mostly known for completing, with punchcutter Jean Alexandre, Philippe Grandjean's Romain du roi, in 1745.

We recall here the digital revival of Romain du Roi by Gert Wiescher in 2005 entitled Royal Romain.
