    Sonntag 24. Juni 2035 is the first novel of Münster-based journalist Klaus Baumeister. It tells a futuristic story about Münster yet deals with the religious history of this very place. The whole plot plays in a time frame of 500 minutes — the last few hours on a countdown clock that leads to the unveiling of an art installation made from the old cages of the Lamberti church.

    The cover typeface Prophet fuses the historical background and futuristic setting of this novel, being calligraphic in the details yet modern and geometric in its overall architecture. The text of the novel is set in GT Sectra, which follows a related idea of a broad nib pen construction. The scalpel knife details of this typeface add an exciting tension to the running text.

    Instead of being structured by chapters, the plot is divided into 500 pieces, referring to the last 500 minutes before the big show. This countdown is set in a lighter weight of Prophet to stand out from the rest of the text.

    The book (in German) is published by Aschendorf.
