A cosy avant-garde…
Last week I stumbled accross these books from Le Club Français du Livre, founded in 1946, combining influences from the surrealist literary movement in France with good marketing — adventurous design and quality binding bring classic and new writing to a large public.
I show one book here in some detail, more in a future post.
The whole book is composed in Grotesque corps 11 (a condensed bold!) and designed by Robert Korn. Printed by Paul Dupont, Paris and bound by Engel in Malakoff.
