Thesaurus, 
a typeface with one foot in the past & 
one foot in the present

This typeface family is inspired by the typographic history of the city of Geneva.
Thesaurus is based on the types that Robert Estienne brought from Paris to Geneva,
which were later used by his son Henri II Estienne for printing the famous book 
"Thesaurus Græcæ Linguæ". These metal types served, in some way, as a bridge 
between France and Switzerland, between Catholicism and Protestantism, 
and now, through Thesaurus, between past and present. 
Thesaurus was released by Typotheque in January 2017.
