Paris Metro font

We mentioned this font created by Paris architect Hector Guimard last month, so here is what it looks like in more detail as used at the Porte Dauphine Metro station street entrance. The Guimard font is available on several websites as payware but Paris Metro which is almost the same is freeware (although other than creating your own signs using the same shade of green, we can't imagine many good uses for it).

And another Metro street entrance by Hector Guimard in his art nouveau style - the two 'flower bulb' lights look more like something out of War of the Worlds!
