    Freshly restored in 2019, Hauteville House welcomed Victor Hugo and his family during his exile from 1856 to 1870 (for opposing Napoleon III). Entirely decorated and furnished by Victor Hugo, the house is a work in itself, bearing the imprint of the author through a multitude of inscriptions, symbols and furnitures that he designed.

    Atelier Pentagon designed the guide with a dashing combination of IKANSEEYOUALL for titles, NewParis KingSize Air for pull quotes, and Founders Grotesk for body text. This mix, combined with blue-tinted pages, gives a very vivid and dynamic look to this small publication.

    Paris Musées / 96 pages / 16×24 cm

    IKANSEEYOUALL is part of the Lab typefaces. NewParis KingSize is part of the NewParis family. Both are available from Swiss Typefaces.
