Font Nouveau

Art Nouveau – also known as Jugendstil – is an international movement and style of art, architecture and applied art – especially the decorative arts – that peaked in popularity at the turn of the 20th century (1890–1905). A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it is characterized by organic, especially floral and other plant-inspired motifs, as well as highly-stylized, flowing curvilinear forms. Curated by Yves Peters.

Arnold Boecklin - designed in 1904 and published by Linotype. #fonts #artnouveau The font Arnold Boecklin appeared in 1904 with the font foundry Otto Weisert. Traces of the floral forms of the Jugendstil can still be seen in this typeface. Alphabets of this type were mainly meant for larger point sizes, as on posters.
