ABOUT







John-Paul Knox

Winnipeg, Canada-based designer of Perrin OT (2004), a recreation of the fonts found in the Oeuvres de Descartes series published by J. Vrin in the 1970s. A René Ponot quote: The Éditions des Cendres book was set in the typeface Perrin (fig. 10), thanks to the understanding and benevolence of the Imprimerie Nationale of France, to which it belongs. Used there for the first time, Perrin was recreated from the authentic Augustaux in 1987 by the Atelier National de Création Typographique, under the direction of Ladislas Mandel and José Mendoza. It was digitized in 1995 by designer Franck Jalleau of the Imprimerie. Knox's Perrin OT, after discussion with Hrant Papazian, morphed into and was renamed Marquet (2004-2005), a delicate text family, which he calls les Elzévirs de Théophile Beaudoire. [PDF file of Knox's Marquet.] He also created Adrichom (2005).
