The use of changing layouts, typefaces and font sizes creates a never boring reading experience—almost every page turn surprises. Still, the “navigation bars” on the pages’ sides keep everything together, so the reader won’t get lost. All used fonts are listed in the book’s colophon. Several of them are shown here, and are identified in the respective image captions. The book additionally uses Aileron, Arimo, Astloch, and Junicode (not pictured). See more images on the website of designer Matthias Hübner.
