Through 650 images drawn from ANRT’s unpublished archives, this catalogue tells the story for the first time of a period of profound technological change, exploring the little-known world of typographic design through a diverse selection of projects drawing on both an age- old craft tradition and the most radical innovation. 

This exceptional book includes:

  • The story of the Atelier, its creation and its 20 first years of existence, counted by Sébastien Morlighem (1979–1991) and Roxane Jubert (1991–2006)
  • Reproductions of all the brochures an posters that have been published
  • A selection of research projects, including works of André Baldinger, Bruno Bernard, Peter Bilak, Johanna Balusikova, Thomas Braichet, François Chastanet, Matthieu Cortat, Serge Cortesi, Yoan De Roeck, Marco Godinho, Sébastien Gouju, Margaret Gray, Thomas Huot-Marchand, Franck Jalleau, Roxane Jubert, Jérôme Knebusch, Laurent Kuhni, Alejandro Lo Celso, Didier Mutel, Muriel Paris, Jean François Porchez, David Poullard and many more: often unpublished projects that have benefited from the teaching of Albert Boton, Hans Jürg Hunziker, Peter Keller, Ladislas Mandel, José Mendoza or Jean Widmer.
