Systematic variation of Art Deco capitals in Cassandre’s posters led to Anisette. Rich contrasts in width and weight of hand-lettered geometry suggested a hidden typographic opportunity. In 1930, Deberny & Peignot released Banjo Initials, adapting a hairline weight for two widths of type. Jean-Francois Porchez completed the typographic system with a five-weight series of striking geometric beauty and great complexity; FB 1997
Among other uses, Anisette is recommended for Magazine, Book and Corporate use.
