Ruhe auf der Flucht — Book Design

Ruhe auf der Flucht

Book Design

Typographically speaking, this was a very interesting project as the structure of the novel called for three different fonts. The two interconnected storylines were set in a serif and a sans-serif typeface, respectively. Interspersed headwords and chapter titles were set in a quite whimsical 16th-century blackletter.
