The Fleurons of Paris...

I knew that this trip would touch me creatively in some way but did not know how. Taken with the extreme and varied detail in well everything it seemed like it was important to capture the trip in several fonts. So the Fleurons of Paris and the Ornaments of Paris were born. While similar, they do differ. The Fleurons contain the flowers and are more curly and round. The Ornaments while still in some cases curly and round also have borders and non-flower images. A careful repetition of elements could create lovely borders. Individual use could add a sophisticated and Parisian element to an invitation, a title page in a book or stationary.

Absorbing all things visual was immensely satisfying second only to coming home and reliving the trip tiny graphic by tiny graphic.
