    The title page introduces a theme that is repeated throughout the 36-pages booklet: A small block in the quirky italic Rondka Urtyp interferes with a center-aligned pull quote in large caps, in this case from Plantin Light.

    Peignot loses most of its eccentricity when used in all caps.

      I can’t believe that in 2014 Stahl still isn’t available to the public in some decent form.

      Have you tried the digitization by Gerhard Helzel? His website sure is scary, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be true for his fonts as well.
