Matte black cover with a black foil-stamp.
A rigid sense of structure, typography, and color is used throughout the book.
Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk Bold set all-caps for running headers and pagination, and Century Schoolbook Roman and Italic for text.
There are no graphic elements in the book that aren’t a direct expression of content. Each page contains only images of each designer’s work and typography.
Interviews with champions of the new typography like online archive Blanka the Many Stuff blog are entirely image-less and printed reversed out of black which builds a sense of drama into the book’s structure without relying on new graphic elements.
Posters occasionally cover up the page-numbering on the right-hand pages to aid pacing and visual rhythm.
