    Trans-missions is the program of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, published three times a year. In order to promote French typeface design, each issue of Trans-missions is composed in a different typeface, which is chosen “for the specificity of its design and personality”. The current issue features Thesaurus, designed by Fermín Guerrero at the Haute École d’Art et Design in Geneva, and released earlier this year with Typotheque. Thesaurus is based on types used by the Estienne family in Paris and Geneva in the 16th century.

    The booklet utilizes all four weights plus the accompanying italics. Instead of adding the designated Display cuts to her palette, Anette Lenz draws on the Black Italic style for headings and the cover typography, further embellishing it by discretionary ligatures and a few carefully inserted swash caps.
