    Fat Face poetry

    This Dutch design from 1980 must be one of the few purely typographic book cover designs using ITC Fat Face. Probably typeset by a specialized display face type studio in Amsterdam.

    The book is a reprint of a collection of essays on poetry. The title means “After the explosion” — the phrase was taken from a poem. Design by Joost van de Woestijne, published by Meulenhoff, Amsterdam.
