La Rue (1930)
This edition of works by French author Francis Carco was published during the 1930s by Albin Michel in Paris. The quirky Fat Face used on the straightforward typographic covers is Deauville, a variation on the Normande genre — named after a prestigious seaside resort in Normandy —, designed by M.Loewe and first cast in 1927 by Fonderie Typographique Française. It was advertised as “the dream type” (le type rêvé) and came with Art Déco alternates for ‘a’ and ‘s’. The latter can be seen in “Huyghens” in the first picture.
