Modelo Type Specimen
The Modelo type specimen—created by Marietta Eugster—is overprinted in silver and red inks on the first 16-page signature of The Most Beautiful Swiss Books 2019 catalogue. Inspired by constructivist typefaces, early archetypes, and discussions about Die Neue Typographie, published in 1928, the Modelo typeface was released by Swiss design studio Maximage for the Jan Tschichold Award in 2020.
