    From Neil Donnelly:

    Slipcase, cover, and interior design for Capital by Kenneth Goldsmith. A 1,000+ page tome composed entirely of writings by other authors about 20th century New York, the book is Goldsmith’s answer to Walter Benjamin’s Arcades Project. Typography with a distinctly 20th-century New York flavor meets a gleaming gold exterior, bolstering Goldsmith’s assertion that the city is “all surface.” Published by Verso, art direction by Andy Pressman.

    Condensed weights of Franklin Gothic makes the tome aggressively American, complemented by Century Old Style for the interior.
