Roger Excoffon and the Olive foundry
Roger Excoffon and the Olive foundry by Sandra Chamaret, Julien Gineste and Sébastien Morlighem
Roger Excoffon (1910-1983) was a significant figure in French typography, the graphic arts and visual communication. To mark the centenary of his birth, Paris based Ypsilon Editeur has just released the first book dedicated to his work. Included are little-known or previously unpublished photographs, drawings and type specimens. The book also presents the history of the Olive Foundry where Roger served as the design director for many years.
