Hendrik van den Keere

The leading Flemish punchcutter of his time and typefounder for Plantin, a superb craftsman active in Ghent in the third quarter of the sixteenth century. Proofs surviving at the Plantin-Moretus Museum showing development of dark, large x-height romans from Flemish blackletter appear to be responsible for Stanley Morison’s theories on the subject.

Van den Keere’s 2-line Double Pica Roman (Gros Canon), cut around 1570 and shown in Plantin’s c.1585 folio specimen, is the basis for Fred Smeijers’ recent face, Renard.
