    Enamel signs from the collection of Jean-François Danquin are displayed all over ESAD Amiens.

    The condensed blackletter for “Allgemeine Rundschau” is closely modeled after Rudolf Koch’s Deutsche Anzeigenschrift (1923). The smaller lines may have been drawn — less directly — after Lucian Bernhard’s Bernhard-Fraktur (1912).

      I was happy to see this too! The hard work was all done by Florian, who (as we all know) actually is the best!

      Merci bien for the pointers about Jean-François Danquin and his collection! That book looks like a treasure trove — ordered. ✓

      Hard work? All I did was remember an old acquaintance. Thanks for taking and sharing all these intriguing photos, Frank!
