About Droulers

Published in 2017

Droulers was designed for a book spanning the life and work of the dancer and choreographer Pierre Droulers. The typeface draws upon printed matter found in Droulers’ personal archive and in particular some typewritten notes. Exploring both the specific rythm and shapes of typewriter alphabets, the design is inspired by the distortions and accidents generated by this technology: letters obstructed by ink, closing counterforms, and so on. Droulers’ true strength appears in text setting at small sizes, but at a larger scale each letter gets its primitive graphic power back.

Send your men to the forecastle, sir.” The forecastle gun was immediately loaded and slewed round. But the shot passed some feet above the cetacean, which was half a mile off. “Another, more to the right,” cried the commander, “and five dollars to whoever An old gunner with a grey beard—that I can see now—with steady eye and grave face, went up to the gun and took a long aim. A loud report was heard, with which were mingled the cheers of the crew. The bullet did its work; it hit the animal, and, sliding off the rounded surface, was lost in two miles depth of sea.
