In the early decades of the twentieth century there was considerable investigation in the realm of typography. The Fleuron, with its well-researched, insightful articles dealing with typography from the 1500s to the present day, came as a welcome addition to an audience eager for information, advice, and examples. The volumes were substantial in size, hard bound, and profusely illustrated, including many tip-in examples displaying beautiful typography – each issue was more of a book than a periodical.
The Fleuron lasted only for seven volumes, but its influence on typography remains substantial and its contents provide an overview of typography in the early twentieth century.
