Du couvent au bordel, mots du joli monde (“From the convent to the brothel, words from the pretty world”) by Claudine Brécourt-Villars is a women’s dictionary, designed by Parisian studio Cheeri and published by La Table Ronde.
Very clever layout. I love the way in which “cou” is separated from “vent” and “bor” from “del.” The serifs create a sort of invisible grid, a sense of visual rhythm that is only broken by the vertical “ la table ronde” – almost crucifix-like. Thank you for sharing. Merci infiniment.
