    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).

    1. Frank you’re the best!

      For enamel signes enthusiastics, the book collecting all the Danquin’s collection (800+ pieces) is available here for a few bucks: www.vivdim.com/livres/Accum…

      And you can preview an extract here: www.vivdim.com/pdf/Livrepla…

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

    3. 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!
