On our sixth day in Paris, we made a visit to La Gaîté Lyrique to check out the inaugural meeting of pointypo – a Paris-based group of letterers and type designers, led by Jérémie Babou­khian, Jean-​​Baptiste Levée, Yohanna Nguyen, Sandrine Nugue and Pauline Nuñez.

The gathering was super casual, and allowed for anyone to pop in, enjoy a beverage, meet fellow typographers, and share their work.

The whole evening was amazing, and everyone in attendance was very welcoming and encouraging. They were incredibly patient with my French, and happy that I stopped by, all the way from Canada. (Special thanks to especially Sandrine and Jean-​​Baptiste Levée for their kindness and warm welcome!)
