Le Bellery-Desfontaines (sometimes shortened to Le Bellery) was commissioned by Peignot & Fils from artist Henri Bellery-Desfontaines and released in 1910–1911 in two widths, Large (wide, with alternates for ‘R’ and ‘Z’) and Allongé (condensed, shown). Both styles have ligatures for ‘etc’, ‘ct’, ‘st’, ‘QU’. Continued by Deberny & Peignot [Reichardt/Hoefer].
Provided inspiration for Nysé (General Type Studio, 2021) and BN Canyon (Brandon Nickerson, 2021).
