WE’RE PLEASED TO WELCOME 2 NEW TYPEFACES:
TRICKSTER & HYPER SCRYPT
If you are in Paris next Monday, come to La Générale from 18:00 to 23:00 for a double release party. We’ll launch Trickster, a typeface by Jean-Baptiste Morizot who also created the well known Bluu, and Hyper Scrypt, a typeface from Jérémy Landes, designer of the Solide Mirage.
This double release party will take the form
of a double exhibition!
Hyper Chapelle is an exhibition by AAAAA Atelier whom, inspired by the stained glass of the Metz Cathedral, created a futuristic and psychedelic utopian pop communication. AAAAA Atelier commissioned Jérémy Landes to develop The Hyper Scrypt Typeface for this exhibition. Hyper Chapelle took place at the end of last summer in Tata Gallery in Metz, discover it for the first time in Paris next week.
For the launch of Trickster we asked a fine selection of contemporary graphic designers / studio to express their own vision of this new font via the creation of a poster.

After our international call for submissions for ampersands taking place last spring, we chose with -Zeug editors the 288 we loved the most. Now they’re making a book of it, beside a translation of Jan Tschichold’s Formenwandlungen der &-Zeichen, a short historical essay dealing with the successive designs of the ampersand glyph.
Some more details about the books
Jan Tschichold (1902-1974, typographer, theorician and teacher) published in 1953 Formenwandlungen der &-Zeichen, a short historical essay dealing with the successive designs of the ampersand glyph. This text is structured by a collection of 288 carefully selected and commented ampersands, which constitues a brief and concise introduction to the history of Western writing and typography. Long unavailable in English, this new translation is published in a facsimile version, faithful to the original design by the author.
[ A new translation by Jean-Marie Clarke — with an afterword by Marc Smith
