« Là où croît le péril, croît aussi ce qui sauve. » — Friedrich Hölderlin Cela pourrait commencer ainsi : la scène typographique française est en pleine ébullition. Comme partout pourtant, le monde de la typographie en France a été touché de plein fouet par l’avènement de la PAO (Publication Assistée par Ordinateur) au milieu des années 1980.

Geneo, designed by Stéphane Elbaz, is a synthesis of historic and present-day visions of typography, a slab serif constructed on an oblique axis. Its subtle contrast evokes both Renaissance elegance and the robustness of the Egyptian typefaces that were in vogue during the 19th century. Geneo falls halfway between the classic styles of Garamond and Fournier, with aspects of contemporary slab serifs. From this blend of styles and genres, it emerges with a singular identity perfectly suited for modern illustrations of quality, savoir-faire, and culture. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

There are many typographic marks which are familiar to most, but understood by few. Most of these glyphs have interesting histories and evolutions as they survived the beatings given to them through rushed handwriting of scribes and misuses through history. They now mostly live on our keyboards and in our software, and a few are used often, so it seems only fitting to know where they come from and how to correctly use them.
