French Toasts

As National Public Radio helpfully reminded me earlier this morning, today is Bastille Day (aka French National Day), commemorating the July 14, 1789, public storming of Paris’ Bastille Saint-Antoine, a fortress-prison that was seen as symbolizing King Louis XVI’s increasingly oppressive and oblivious monarchy. Consider this an ideal occasion to revisit the large collection of beautiful French book fronts I assembled five years ago for my other blog, Killer Covers.
