About this font family
Louize is a contemporary revival of the ‘Augustaux’ designed by Louis Perrin between 1846 and 1855, and considered as the first revival in the history of typography. Louize mixes roman square capitals with a set of transitional / old style / incised lower case, carefully made for comfortable reading in long texts.

For titling, Louize is completed with its 'sister’ Louize Display.
Louize is peaceful, sedate, serene, soft, and timeless. Louize Display is bright, keen, sharp, contemporary.
In Roman, Louize Display has a special series of ligatures inspired by those of the stone carvers. Its italic give all their splendor to the swash capitals of its historical model.
