    There aren’t many situations in which the wonderfully odd 1990 typeface Gestalt is appropriate, but this was one. The recognizable one-word title, with its repeated letters, cried out for a special treatment; and the descriptive subtitle, in a much more legible typeface, made it immediately clear what the book was about. Gestalt would not have worked on the spine, though, where legibility is the most important factor. Everything else on the cover (and the interior design as well) used various members of the Freight family.
