abstract

The end of the 19th century in England and France was a time of active growth for publishing houses, newspapers, magazines, and printed materials in general. This contributed to the emergence of a huge number of artists who specialised and occasionally participated in the design of books. These artists won their places through constant competition based on the quality of their drawings. England and France were the centres of the new art of the book, but the views and approaches of representatives of this type of graphics differed from each other in these countries. Thus, the purpose of this report is to demonstrate the difference between the canons and principles of English and French book design at the turn of the twentieth century.
