Excelsior was a French daily illustrated newspaper published between 1910 and 1940. It was founded by Pierre Lafitte, a journalist turned entrepreneur and pioneer in photojournalism. The inclusion of large illustrations and photographs caused the newspaper’s costs to be quite high, and consequently the price to readers was higher than competitors. New features were added in the 1920s to retain readers and several prominent authors, poets, and artists gained early exposure on its pages. Although never matching Le Petit Parisien in circulation, it remained one of the more prominent papers of the interwar period.
