    “To better understand the history of Ambroise, at least a few references to the Didot’s history provide some clarity. Where to start when exploring the Didot story? From Romain du Roi or Fournier, as strategic roots? For the sake of brevity, we will start with: Gillé.”

    ¶ I purchased a licence of Ambroise Pro because in the first release of 2001, the format was PostScript —that included the alternate files (Alt)— and no italics were provided.

    ¶ Now Porchez offered OpenType files and expanded the weights to seven (light, regular, demi, bold, extra bold, heavy, black) and added the related italics: very good news!

    ¶ The style of Ambroise Pro is based on the design of Pierre Didot's Romantic leaning: see François Rappo's Didot Elder for reference.
