    Proto Slab in use for the English title and the author name on the cover of 万物起源, the Chinese edition of David Bercovici’s The Origins of Everything in 100 Pages (More or Less) by Beijing Imaginist Time Culture / Guangxi Normal University Press. Paris-based Atelier AAAAA provided the cover design and the colorful illustrations. The gothic fonts used for the Chinese text are unidentified [edit: they are from the Lantinghei family, see comments]. The book was originally published in 2016 by Yale University Press:

    With wonder, wit, and flair—and in record time and space—geophysicist David Bercovici explains how everything came to be everywhere, from the creation of stars and galaxies to the formation of Earth’s atmosphere and oceans, to the origin of life and human civilization. Bercovici marries humor and legitimate scientific intrigue, rocketing readers across nearly fourteen billion years and making connections between the essential theories that give us our current understanding of topics as varied as particle physics, plate tectonics, and photosynthesis. Bercovici’s unique literary endeavor is a treasure trove of real, compelling science and fascinating history, providing both science lovers and complete neophytes with an unforgettable introduction to the fields of cosmology, geology, genetics, climate science, human evolution, and more.
