Gens De Baton was published by HiH. Gens De Baton includes 1 design. p > Gens De Baton is based on a charming lower case alphabet that appeared in the Almanach des Enfants pour 1886 (Paris 1886) under the heading "Amusing Grammar Lessons." Gens De Baton implies simply "Stick People." The unknown designer turned the bare letter kinds into illustrations of individuals for the enjoyment of the children for whom the almanac was planned. The letter forms themselves were based on the French Romain du Return of investment (King's Roman), except for the 'g' and the 'j'-- which were based upon Baskerville. The letters 'w' and 'y' were not included, as they are rarely seen in French. We have left the letters somewhat rough, as they appeared in the Almanach des Enfants, withstanding the temptation to clean up all the lines and render them with digital perfection.

We have actually used our HiH Firmin Didot to supply an upper case and auxiliary characters, as Didot was originally a customized variation of Romain du Return of investment. It is fascinating to observe the contrast between the sleek look of the Didot upper case and the rough, hand-drawn look of the lower case.

Purchasers of this font style have our authorization to utilize it for the amusement of grownups along with children. We recommend setting Gens De Baton at 24 points or bigger.
