The Lost Time Accidents by John Wray

    In his ambitious and fiercely inventive new novel, John Wray takes us from turn-of-the-century Viennese salons buzzing with rumours about Einstein’s radical new theory to the death camps of the Second World War, from the golden age of post-war pulp science fiction to a startling discovery in a modern-day Manhattan apartment packed to the ceiling with artefacts of contemporary life.

    The main typeface is the marvelous Taüll by Andreu Balius (Typerepublic, 2007), “a southern flavoured typeface […] inspired from old black lettering devices” — and bearing some resemblance to Louis Oppenheim’s Fanfare (1927) —, designed with the goal “to link the medieval world with our brand new digital metropolis.” The slightly angular script used for the article is Laura Worthington’s Voltage (thanks to Oli for the ID!).
