Simon de Colines

Colines, Simon de (sēmôNˈ də kôlēnˈ) [key], d. 1546, Parisian printer. He was associated with the elder Henri Estienne and continued his work. Colines used elegant roman and italic types and a Greek type, with accents, that was superior to its predecessors. He is believed to have designed some of his types; some were designed by Geofroy Tory. His books, often small in format, are superbly crafted.
