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).
