After an “intensive typographical adventure” comprising “hundreds of hours of in-depth research, meticulous drawing, discussion, testing, and reﬁning,” a team of experts from the Plantin Institute for Typography has released “the largest and most comprehensive collection of revivals based on the work of a single punchcutter to date.”
The team? Walda Verbaenen, Michel Paré, and Lukas Schneider. The punchcutter? Jacques-François Rosart, born in Namur, Belgium in 1714.
The Rosart Project has all the deets, as the kids say. It’s a pretty cool story. And if you’re so inclined, you can even purchase licenses for revisions and reinterpretations of Rosart’s fonts, ornaments, and flourished capitals.
