About VLNL Boulangerie Font Family

VLNL Boulangerie was originally an incomplete set of early 20th century wood type letters, that Donald Roos found in a dust covered carton box stashed away somewhere at the Royal Academy in The Hague. Charmed by the letter forms Donald decided to print them on paper with a printing press. Next he digitised the prints as they came out, including small imperfections and damages. The missing characters were composed and added digitally to complete the alphabet. (See if you can spot those!?) We think VLNL Boulangerie is a little French in appearance (hence the name), it's joyful, warm, a little crunchy and round-ish. It defenitely has that ‘je-ne-sais-quoi’ that seperates it from most wood type grotesques. It can be perfect for lettering on a storefront window of – let's say a bread shop or a lunchroom. Or a logo for a downtown hipster café. VLNL Boulangerie hardly has any limitations actually.

VLNL Boulangerie™ is a trademark of VetteLetters.

About VetteLetters is fascinated by kebab shops, local chinese restaurants and fish-and-chips joints – not just the food but especially the shopfront typography. If all the other type foundries are like haute cuisine restaurants, then VetteLetters is the font-imbiss in the world of exclusive and expensive font foundries. VetteLetters, based in Amsterdam, loves food and loves fonts. So let’s introduce our chefs: After a wonderful career as a dishwasher, assistant cook, some kind of designer, and last but not least type designer, Donald® Roos is now one of VetteLetters CEOs. Donald DBXL Beekman is “the other Donald” and also the other CEO. DBXL produces as many typefases as Prince makes records. Jacques “Sardines” Le Bailly also known as the Baron von Fonthausen is Chief Type Tech. Dev. Dept. and we have Martin “TwoPoints” Lorenz, baking his fonts in the lovely climate of Barcelona. The latest addition to the VetteLetters stable is designer Henning Brehm aka “Design Tourist” hailing from Berlin.
