New Book! (Frasconi Edition)


Permalink

You wouldn’t believe how long it took us to put together these eight pages. Still, we hope it was worth the wait as this little book will, no doubt, prove to be a perfect summer beach read: It’s short, sweet, and features a lost design treatise by a great designer. Get yours here.

A Card for Triolet


Permalink

We love working for booksellers—and Triolet Rare Books is no exception. We’ve designed their business card, stationery, their first list of offered books, and, now, this card that they’ll be handing out at an upcoming event. On the inside is a nice essay which describes what they’re all about. As with all of the work we do for them, this one’s been set in Arno types and printed in black and Triolet Gray.

Everything’s Off to the Printer

We were pleased to design another Wiseblood Essay in Contemporary Culture. One can learn a little more about the series here. See if you can guess which in the series were designed by us.

A Snack-Worthy Book


Permalink

After we planned the typography for Granary Press’s new book Elevenses we were hungry for a late-morning snack. A long prose poem by Charles North and paintings by Trevor Winkfield, this one’s been set in Mallory types. Get your own copy here. (Does Trevor’s name seem familiar? That’s probably because we also designed his book How I Became a Painter for Pressed Wafer. Charles’s name will soon be familiar as we’re about to start designing his next book. Stay tuned.)

No Book Is an Island

No book is an island—and this is especially true of Islands, the second in a series of exhibition catalogues for a nearby private collection. The page size will always be the same, but the typography changes to accommodate the content. This one’s been set in PS Fournier types and printed by GHP Media.

You Demanded and We Complied

The Nude in the News

We were really honored to be asked by Counter-Print to write about our favorite book cover—especially because we’re always glad to tell people how much we know. Read our thoughts on this cover by Leonard Baskin here.

Twelve Typography Titles


Permalink

We’re glad to design anything for David R. Godine, Publisher—but this is especially true when the content surveys the work of heroes and friends. This modest, little catalogue contains, essentially, a list of titles that are required for anyone interested in the history, study, and use of letters. Download your own copy of this catalogue here.
