    […] Body Sweats is the first major collection of Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven’s poems in English. The Baroness’s biographer Irene Gammel and coeditor Suzanne Zelazo have assembled 150 poems, most of them never before published.

    The book’s interior is set in a combination of Sibylle Hagmann’s Odile and Adrian Frutiger’s Univers Condensed. This pairing is also to be found on the cover, with “BODY” in — unconventional and hence quite fitting — all swash caps, more precisely Odile’s Initials and Deco Initials.
