About:

Valentin was inspired by the work of Valentin Haüy, creator of the first books for the blind. His comprehensive plan, as outlined in Essay on the Education of the Blind, included instruction in both reading raised print and writing longhand with an iron stylus to create indentations; for this dual purpose a cursive style was used.

Although it may now seem a complicated design for first teaching the blind to read, it’s also a beautiful but rather eccentric version of what is called a vertical French script. Working from a facsimile of the copy of l’Essai sur l’éducation des aveugles presented to Louis XVI on Christmas 1786 I completely redrew the font. I kept the basic form of the letters while smoothing, regularizing, and re-spacing them for better legibility by eye. Also works well italicized for more of a script feel.
