Not only spelt wrong but terrible typography & design of Charlie Hebdo memorial
As if spelling Wolinski's name on the memorial plaque for Charlie Hebdo was not bad enough, the typeface, typographic design, layout and overall design of the monument, even down to choice of the stone colour and fixings could not be worse. This is a very sad, retro style (1940's?) monument that shows no respect to these men of letters, to who the word and its graphic expression were the most important things in their lives.
