Faune is a free font family commissioned by the Centre National des Arts Plastiques in partnership with the Groupe Imprimerie Nationale and designed by Alice Savoie, typeface designer, teacher and researcher in type history.

Faune is clearly inspired to the animal world and is based on two great historical works that have both been printed and conserved by the French Imprimerie Nationale: Histoire naturelle by Buffon and the Description de l’Égypte, commissioned by the Emperor Napoleon I.
