Type Gallery – Nicolas Cochin
Font Designer: Georges Peignot
Georges Peignot designed the font Nicolas Cochin® based on copper engravings of the 18th century and Charles Malin cut the typeface in 1912 for the Paris foundry Deberny & Peignot. The font is named after the French engraver Charles Nicolas Cochin (1715–1790) although its style had little to do with that of the copper artist. Nicholas Cochin is a freer variation of another Peignot font, Cochin®, a bit more balanced and elegant.
