At the beginning of the 20th century, a new artistic movement spread throughout Europe and America: Art Nouveau. Today, artists, designers, and typographers avidly search out authentic specimens of the endlessly inventive Art Nouveau fonts. This versatile volume offers Dover's largest and finest royalty-free collection of Art Nouveau typographic materials: 137 complete alphabets (upper and lower cases); 23 upper cases; 33 sets of decorative initials; 1,951 monograms; 146 signet designs; 179 miscellaneous designs (many with borders) and numerous ornaments. In addition to Art Nouveau typography, you'll also find a choice selection of Gothic, Roman, and Italic fonts.
This volume is an authentic facsimile of what is arguably the greatest album of Art Nouveau typography produced during the heyday of the style: Schriftenatlas neue Folge, a compilation of type specimens from the leading foundries of the day. In its pages can be found the timeless creations of some of the most influential type designers of the early 20th century: William Morris, Otto Eckmann, Eugene Grasset, and others. An informative Publisher's Note to this edition outlines the development of Art Nouveau typography while simultaneously illuminating the fascinating background of the original collection and its creative milieu.
