Typofonderie first ad featuring Le Monde

PTF Annonce EG34 le Monde family, 1997 by Porchez Typofonderie

Directly from my archives, the first announcement of Le Monde family + few others typefaces from Typofonderie, at the time under the name Porchez Typofonderie. It was published in Étapes Graphiques no 34, November 1997.

Goodies: Le Monde T-shirt specially produced for the launch was sent with earlier licenses of the family!
