    This stunning design for John Updike’s Seek My Face uses Chip Kidd’s neoclassical typeface of choice, Monotype Bulmer, in its Display cut. The extreme close-up photograph (shot by Kidd’s regular collaborator Geoff Spear) alludes both to the title and the theme of the novel — the artistic avant-garde in New York during the 1950s and 1960s. The accompanying sans serif is Interstate.
