In the end of 1400’s, in Lyon (France), was living Barthélémy Buatier, descendant from a rich family of merchants. In the end of 1472, he engages a typographist from Liège (Belgium): Guillaume Le Roy. The first book stemming from their print shop was the “Compendium breve” ( by Pope Innocent III.) using Blackletters “textura”. Many books were following, most offen illustrated with wood carving. In 1483, to print a French translated “Eneide”, they used a venetian “Rotunda” blackletter. Our font was created inspired from this “Rotunda” set, with historical forms and ligatures enriched with accented letters and other characters not existing in the original.
