French printer and engraver whose designs in Champ fleury (1529) provided the model for styles of book decoration in the French Renaissance. Typographers long struggled with the problem of developing a formula for the design of capital Roman letters, a question Tory effectively addressed in his seminal work.

Champ fleury won such great acclaim that King Francis I appointed him to the position of Imprimeur du Roy in 1530.
