About Royal Romain Font Family


Royal Romain was inspired by a font developed for the Sun King of France, Louis XIV. A group of “scientists” set off to work on the task of producing the ultimate font for the king of all kings. After years of elaborations Philippe Grandjean then started to cut the final punches for the “Imprimerie Royale” and finished his part of the work, with the font’s first appearance in the magnificent Médailles sur les principaux énvenémens du règne de Louis-le-Grand (1702). The complete set of 21 sizes of roman and italic letters was finished by Grandjean’s successor Jean Alexandre and completed by Louis Luce in 1745. The font went by the name of “Romain du Roi” and was for the exclusive use of Louis XIV. It was never sold or given to any other king or government. The king of Sweden tried to scrounge a set, but the king refused. This font is the basic design for such famous fonts as the Fournier and Bodoni. Just so the Romain du Roi didn't get lost in the digital turmoil, I set out to redesign it in 2004 and finished in early 2008. I did a lot of research in France’s National Library. A good excuse to visit Paris is always welcome!!! Over the years people kept on asking me why there was no »Bold« cuts and I had to reply that to my knowledge the king did not have a bold version of his font. I did not really want to change that, but I got so many requests, that finally I have extended the font-family by a pair of bold cuts. And to make things even better, I extended the number of glyphs in both weights, they now have over 440 glyphs. So the fonts can be used in many more countries and they have better kerning and a lot of ligatures. Enjoy! I only sell in pairs, but for a fair price. Your very dedicated Gert Wiescher
