François DA ROS
Type-setter
Craft National Living Treasures 1998

François Da Ros is an art typographer who now exclusively works for Anakatabase editions, and enjoys an undeniable notoriety among contemporary artists and poets.

The quality of his works shows, if need be, that moving lead typography is a method that allows more than any other to express in the slightest details the creative will of the artist or of the literary author.

The typographer workmanship requires deep theoretical knowledge and is also the field of a complex experience where intuition, precision of the gesture and mechanical knowledge meet.

The choice of the character or of the paper and of the materials used to compose and reveal the beauty of the text are closely linked to its nature and what it expresses, and that the typographer reveals.
