Dusting latin type history #2 Start making sans: France
with Sébastien Morlighem

The Monarchy of July was an eventful and fecund period in France on many levels. The rise of advertising and the development of the press and publishing allowed many trades such as printing, typography but also lithography and sign painting to thrive. The appearance and spread of sans serif letters will be the main theme of this presentation.
