Issued by Deberny & Peignot in roman and italic. Caps in larger sizes were also available in a bolder weight (as Initiales Astrée noire). [Signes] The roman came with small caps and some swash terminal forms (for ‘e’, ‘t’), while the italic had alternate swash caps. Punches were cut by M. Bourreau. Also issued by Stephenson Blake in 1926 as Mazarin. [Millington, Corpus typographique français, Klingspor-Museum, Bogtrykkeren] Mazarin has some differences, including replacing Astrée’s unusual ‘r’ with a more conventional form.
