The French use of type has always interested me. As far as I am aware it is not a nation known for pre-eminence in stone cut lettering, though it has its good share of fine typographers and type designers. I came across this example from a Penrose album of 1954. It illustrates some typefaces from the Deberny and Peignot foundry, but I like this one because it shows a chalk drawn letter from which, I understand, a face known as Janco, was born. This is named after its designer, Marcel Jacno, mainly as a font for use in advertising.
