    For the German edition of Josef Formánek’s novel Mluviti pravdu (“To Tell the Truth”), experienced and prolific Czech book designer Martin Pecina has chosen Urban Grotesk for the cover, chapter titles, subheadings and page numbers, and JAF Lapture for the body text. The designer explains his choice:

    we have developed a graphic design that not only differs fundamentally from the Czech edition, but above all more reflects the German tradition, characterized by Albert Kapr and the purist international typographic style, as it crystallized in the 1960s.
