Edmund Dulac's Picture Book for the French Red Cross
Dulac, Edmund, illustrator,
Hodder & Stoughton - London, Publisher; Croix Rouge Francaise - France, 1915
A book titled "Edmund Dulac's picture book for the British Red Cross", published in 1915 during the war for the Daily Telegraph on behalf of the French Red Cross in aid of its funds. It is an illustrated picture book of prose and poetry from around the world and also contains a photograph of Edmund Dulacon page 129. The curly-ended letters on this book are echoed in the cover illustration. This clever trick creates a visual link between the title and the cover image. Adapting text like this can be a creative way to modify existing typefaces and make them unique.
