“In 1938, French designer Charles Loupot drew a revolutionary logotype to promote St. Raphael aperitif wine. Half a century later, the qualities of this logo inspired New York designer and illustrator Laurie Rosenwald to work with Boston type designer Cyrus Highsmith in expanding it into a typeface. At once industrial and calligraphic in style, Loupot is one of the few scripts that offers a truly successful all-capital setting.” [Font Bureau]
