David fighting giants

The David specimen is set in 3 different formats. A fight between the small and the big (guess who wins…) It will show you the 6 weights of the David family and their italics. Texts are in french and english.

The specimen was supposed to be launched at the same time as the corresponding typeface, but it took a lot of time for it to reach maturity. The main text is the one relating the fight between David and Goliath. You can buy it in the “Products” section of this website, right here.

“We often have the most to fear
From those we most despise;
Again, great risks a man may clear,
Who by the smallest dies.”
Jean de La Fontaine, The Lion and the Gnat
