This family was inspired by the eroded and tired fonts used by printers from the sixteenth century to the early years of twentieth for cheap or fleeting works, like almanacs, adverts, gazettes or popular novels.

This font is partially derived from a dirty Garamond used to print a small school booklet for children, in Dijon (France) circa 1689. There are two styles: Normal and Italic, with small caps and lower cases alternates added and a few fleurons from the same printer. Its original cap height is about seven millimeters.

Decorated letters like 1512 Initials, 1550 Arabesques, 1565 Venetian or 1584 Rinceau from GLC Foundry, can be used with this family without anachronism.
