    It’s not my kind of music at all, but I can definitely appreciate some large Albertus caps, eerily illuminated at night.

    Having sold three million albums, Unheilig apparently is Germany’s most successful rock band of the past decade. The band’s typographic appearance has been unusually and admirably consistent. Unheilig has relied on Albertus ever since the first single in 2000. Gipfelstürmer is their farewell release.

    Font makers: Note the lowered umlaut dots for ‘Ü’ in the billboard ad, which are not needed on the album cover itself. There is a real-world need for such compact umlauts. Consider providing them as alternates, so that graphic designers don’t have to make them themselves.
