Poster and catalogue for Tout le monde connaît Roger Excoffon (“Everybody knows Roger Excoffon”), an exhibition at Musée de l’imprimerie in Lyon. The bilingual catalogue gathers more than 100 previously unpublished documents about the iconic French art director Roger Excoffon (1910–1983), designer of identities, logos, stamps as well as several famous typefaces such as Mistral, Banco, Choc, Vendôme, Antique Olive and Calypso.

Don’t miss Extrafine’s dedicated web cartography project that accompanied the exhibition. In a collaborative effort, hundreds of examples of Excoffon’s typefaces in use in the public space were mapped and can be explored via Google Street View.
