Euclid – Typeface Mystery No. 1
The second typeface monograph produced by Swiss Typeface, Euclid – Typeface Mystery No. 1 was conceived and art directed by Zurich-based studio Hubertus Design.
The monograph showcases the many facets of Euclid, a geometric sans typeface. Functioning as much more than a type specimen, the heart of the book is a mystery novel, A Snippet of the Clear Night Sky by Matthias Michel. A photograph series by Franco-Swiss artist Matthias Michel, "Eerie Indeed," augment the book with a rich pictorial layer. And Euclid is used to set all text.
Structured as a multidisciplinary triptych, with the three components skillfully interwoven, the combined outcome is equally beautiful and disturbing, a creation that's difficult to simply categorize.
Designed and art directed by Hubertus Design (Matthias Michel, Jonas Voegeli, Lea Fischlin, Kerstin Landis)
