Au travail ma chérie is one of the bibliophile publications of the Imprimerie nationale Éditions that was produced by the Atelier du Livre d'Art et de l'Estampe, which is a division of the French national printer. All editions are assembled by hand by experienced craftsmen. For this edition the Atelier used Gauthier, one of the seven exclusive font faces of the Imprimerie nationale. Louis Gauthier developed his typeface in the period from 1969 to 1978. It is a sans serif font with letters 'sans empattements' that are striking due to their austere character and the simplicity of the line drawing. The typeface was designed especially for the Imprimerie nationale Éditions, and is now not only available as a monotype face, but also in digital form.
