Didot

Didot

 

several generations of French typographers, editors, inventors, and entrepreneurs in the fields of printing and paper production. The first, Francois Didot (1689-1757), founded a printing shop (1713) and a bookstore in Paris. The most important representatives of the family were Francois Ambroise Didot (1730-1804), who perfected a printing press and improved the Fournier system of typographical measurement, cast “antique” type, introduced vellum paper, and published two series of French classics; and Firmin Didot (1764-1836), who introduced the term and developed the process of stereotypy and created the contemporary system of typographical measurement (the “Didot system”). For the accomplishments of Firmin Didot, the family in 1887 received the surname Firmin-Didot. (Firmin Didot is now a French publishing and bookselling firm.)
