Not Just Fleurons — ISTD

Flourishology

If they're Not Just Fleurons, then what are they?

This is my entry for the ISTD competition of 2011 and the brief called for the entrant to analyze fleurons. I chose to pursue a literal and humorous interpretation and looked to floral compendiums and medical journals from the late 1800s for visual cues. My take on the brief is a sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek pseudo-science, entirely fabricated and bordering on ridiculous, framed in classic book design. For this project I received a pass and an honorary membership from the ISTD.
