Blaise Cendrars. L’Or: la merveilleuse histoire du Général Johann August Suter. Paris: Club du Meilleur Livre, 1956

“In L’Or, a biographical novel about a nineteenth-century American pioneer, the decorative use of numerals is striking. A real eye-catcher is the cloth cover printed in rainbow colours. Massin emulates the typographical style of nineteenth-century posters. He would añways remain partial to the display of typography of that era.”
