“In 1998, Tobias Frere-Jones designed Grand Central for 212 Associates from late-’20s capitals hand-painted on the walls of Grand Central Station. The design is a distinguished Beaux Arts descendant of the great French Oldstyle originated by Louis Perrin in Lyons [sic] in 1846, known across Europe as Elzevir and in the United States as De Vinne. Lettering from different areas was combined for Light; Bold was designed for more distant signs. [Font Bureau, 2000] Originally released by Font Bureau. Moved to Frere-Jones Type in 2020.
