French poster artist (b. Nice, 1892, d. Les Arcs-sur-Argens, 1962) in the 1930s who was one of the main poster artists of his time, together with the three musqueteers, A.M. Cassandre, Jean Carlu and Paul Colin. He was an avantgardist, who contributed mainly in the art deco style. I am aware of the following digital typefaces based on his poster lettering.
Posters: Café Martin, Cointreau, Fourrures Canton, Mekka Cigarettes, O Cap, O Cap, Bonnard.
