About Royal Romain font family

Royal Romain was inspired by a font developed for most famous king of France, Louis XIV the Sun King. A group of “Scientists” set off to work on the task of producing the ultimate font for the king of all kings. After years of elaborations Philippe Grandjean then started to cut the final punches for the “Imprimerie Royale” and finished his part of the work with the fonts first appearance in the magnificent Médailles sur les principaux énvenémens du règne de Louis-le-Grand (1702). The complete set of 21 sizes of roman and italic letters was finished by Grandjean’s successor Jean Alexandre and completed by Louis Luce in 1745. The font went by the name of “Romain du Roi” and was for the exclusive use of the Louis XIV. It was never sold or given to any other king or government. Even though the king of Sweden tried to scrounge a set, but the king refused. This font is the basic design for such famous fonts as the Fournier and Bodoni. Just so the Romain du Roi doesn't get lost in the digital turmoil I set out to redesign it in 2004 and finished now in early 2008. I did a lot of research in France’s National Library. A good excuse to visit Paris is always welcome!!! I only sell the pair, but for a fair price. Your very dedicated Gert Wiescher
