Sans Douleur is a creative workshop founded in May 2015, based on the love of the homemade, the handmade and the well-made. The story begins as follows: an encounter between Alexandre Martins, born with a pencil in his hands, and Fanny Hamelin, born with a needle between her fingers. Both attracted by the world of tattoo and fashion design, they decided to combine the uniqueness of one with the serial character of the other in order to obtain unique pieces. The connection between tattoo and handmade embroidery involves key elements such as: the needle, manual work, mastery of the gesture as well as the creativity and rarity of each piece. By giving the name Sans Douleur the creators of the workshop wanted to suggest that embroidering a t-shirt was like a painless tattoo.

This is the english version of my french abstract (mémoire). I became interested in fancy fonts, the subject on which my degree is based. I tried to trace a brief history, to question the status of these fonts. I also did a research on the current events and the contemporaneity of these fonts. In a last time, I analyzed this part of the typographic classification through the prism of kitsch, which is a notion that fascinates me.

This book, realized with Léo Guibert, is an interpretation of a part of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's Mille Plateaux, a famous philosophical essay.
The purpose of this book was to decompose each layer of the text, by word, by categories, by the meaning. All the elements are then indexed at the end of each chapter.
