Jacques Francois is a revival of the 1760 Enschedé no. 811 type specimen by Jacques François Rosart (1714-1774) made for Enschedé Printing House. It was designed to give an even typographic color while preserving the essential historic peculiarities of the original. It has an expanded glyph set, and to improve readability on the web the x-height is increased and the thinnest parts of letterforms are more sturdy.
Jacques Francois is designed for medium to small size usage. Old style figures are included.
There is also Jacques Francois Shadow, an incised variant.
Jacques Francois was designed by Manvel Shmavonyan and Alexei Vanyashin. To contribute, see github.com/cyrealtype/Jacques-Francois
