About Ivy FoundryThe Ivy Foundry
The Ivy Foundry, founded in 2016 by Jan Maack, is a small independent type foundry based in Denmark. The foundry takes its name from the fleuron—a glyph used as a punctuation mark or as an ornament for typographic compositions. It’s one of the oldest typographic ornaments, present in early Greek and Roman inscriptions. The fleuron (or header in Latin) is a stylized form of the ivy leaf.
