    Rig Shaded 3D typeface used on the cover of Tim Anderson’s Japanese cookbook, Tokyo Stories. Described as a love letter to Japan’s capital city, Tokyo Stories is a journey through the boulevards and backstreets of Tokyo.

    Rig Shaded is used in the title “TOKYO” on the cover and for section headings within the book. The styles that were combined in layers are Bold Face, Rig Shaded, and Bold Shading Coarse.

    Evi O. picked two very different faces to complete the book cover. Moloch adds character to “STORIES”; compressed and expanded weights of the more neutral GT America seem to be used for top and bottom of cover, and the book spine.
