Something mysterious, something Gid

10/09/2012

Sometimes an illustration hits you with such force that you just want to share it with others. Such is this, which I came across in Book Design and Production, vol 2, number 2, of 1959. The accompanying text relates that it comes from Livre D’Heures of 1959 and was designed by Raymond Gid using the Vendome type family. Of this type it is described as having a ‘resemblance to wood-cut or stone-chiselled lettering’. A same is shown below, though it does not seem to bear much resemblance to the text above – answers please.
