Designed by A. M. Cassandre in 1937, Peignot is a sans-serif typeface. It does not contain a set of traditional lower case letters. Instead it uses a mixture of smaller capital letters and some lower case letters. The font reached its peak of popularity through the mid to late 1940s, seeing a decline in use throughout the 1950s. Currently it is a trademark of the Linotype Corp. (licensee of Linotype GmbH), and is sold either individually or in packages through Adobe (as part of Adobe Font Folio).
