Jost Hochuli’s first Typeface in use


Jost Hochuli, my personal hero in the field of book design with a humanistic approach. Well, Hochuli has just used his typeface “Allegra” for the first time in a book, or as he would call it “büchlein” called Krawanker by Bruno Pellandrini which he also designed. It was published by Edition Krill in vienna.


I like the way he works with the material, on this exapmle you can see trough the print from the other page which produces some kind of depth. And how he treats the pagina, it’s all about the rythmn. The Book is a medium in time.
