“Bifur” alphabet designed by A M Cassandre, Deberny et Peignot, Paris – 1929

Cassandre is probably best remembered as a poster artist but his gaphic talents were far wider – including graphic design and typography. This is his Bifur typeface, for the Paris type house of Deberny et Peignot, from 1929 and truly echoing the art deco styling of the day.
