ABOUT







Pierre Fourny

Designer of La Police Coupable, a font that when cut horizontally is such that top halves and bottom halves can be matched almost at will to make new letters. It created controversyt, because "police" (font) also means the police force. So, the font is called "The police is guilty". As a result, the INPI (Institut National de la Propriété Industrielle, the French IP institute) refused the publication and registration of the trademark La Police Coupable. About the same time, Sarkozy accepted 170,000 Euros in cash in a brown envelope from a rich woman, and the corrupt French circus continues---the good are bad and the bad get rich.
