French Typography


Typography in any language is a beautiful vision.....strung together in way that creates the perfect OUI and TRES is candy for the ears.....

These fonts on simple chalkboards and more formal signage spoke to me throughout France, popping up as if highlighted by neon lights at every turn....Doesn't it inspire you in new ways to create something fun and interesting?

Oui, it most certainly does speak to me! It says "I want to go to Paris"!

How are you? I wanted to thank you for the sachet and licorice. Sooooo sweet of you. How did you end up using the boxes? Did you like them?

It's so good to hear from you... I was just about to e-mail you to check on you. You were on my mind today.

I like those things as well... In my garden I have a french street sign found in the south of France by my sister... and the good thing is the street has the name of the quartier I live so really great ;)
