Sitting on the edge of the Mediterranean during the 1950s, was the Fonderie Olive. Supplying it with type designs, from a studio filled with devoted assistants, was Roger Excoffon. The assistants were right to be devoted; the creative space he filled remains empty to this day. But among the many faces that came out of Excoffon's studio were the Antique Olive family and Mistral, which probably will never be successfully imitated. What better testimonial can a designer have? Mistral was a tour de force in metal type making, because this apparently casual script joined flawlessly (although the ragged outline helps to disguise the joins). Now it looks just as good in electronic form.
