This project is a presentation of the so called Vox-ATypI classification, devised by Maximilien Vox in 1954. The object is a booklet that you unfold until revealing a poster. First, you discover the booklet which explains the different typefaces using the Vox-ATypI classification‘s logic and, once you open entirely the booklet, you see a decorative poster which has the purpose to teach particularities of the different font families. Each typeface is linked to a symbol that we find on the both sides, so that we can compare and relate each part of font to its classification. It’s a way to familiarize our eye with the shapes and characteristics of the font families. The scriptes and manuaires were deliberately omitted.
