ABOUT







Jules Didot

Fourth generation Didot dynasty member in Paris, 1794-1871. Son of Pierre Didot. Jules Didot is famous for his invention of round-edged initials, to take the place of the sharp-edged ones. In 1825 he took his printing plant to Brussels and founded the Royal Printing House there. Relevant here is the publication Specimen des caractères de la fonderie normale à Bruxelles, provenant de la fonderie de Jules Didot et de son père Pierre Didot (Haarlem: Joh. Enschedé en Zonen, 1914).
