Fin de Siècle Austrian Typography: What Is Its Legacy?

My BA thesis focuses on typography in Austria at the turn of the last century. Exploring how Habsburg politics were in conflict with Europe’s rapid modernization, I focus on the art movements that arose in Vienna counteracting Emperor Franz Joseph’s reluctance to adapt to change. Though Austria is rarely considered a source of typographic inspiration, there were advancements in ornamental lettering and typographic teachings that are still referenced today.
