    A compilation of stories by three emerging Austrian authors with ties to the Grazer GruppeBernhard Hüttenegger: Poetische Begegnungen. Zwischenwissenschaft; Rose Nager: Der Tod neben den Schienen; Reinhard P. Gruber: Die grimmige Geschichte von Hans und Grether — with drawings by three artists with local roots; Erhard Göttlicher, Ingeborg Strobl, and Günter Waldorf. Published by Styrian Artline in 1976.

    Ten years ago, most of my design peers would have agreed that this jacket design looks terribly dated — too dark, too loud, too stiff. That outlined Helvetica white on black is a nightmare. That three lines of Stack are at least two too much. Today I can well imagine spotting a newly released book about cultural studies or urbanism with exactly this kind of brutalist cover typography. Of course the fonts now wouldn’t be Helvetica and Stack, but rather, say, Px Grotesk and Grow.
