The Hidden Flower by Pearl S. Buck (Cardinal)
1 Comment on “The Hidden Flower by Pearl S. Buck (Cardinal)”
The small type on the left (“A Cardinal Edition”, “The Complete Book”) is set in caps from Lydian Condensed. If you feel this typeface is somewhat similar to Post-Antiqua, you’re onto something: they are both works by designers who studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule Offenbach under Rudolf Koch. Post-Antiqua is by Herbert Post, who was Koch’s student from 1921 to 1924. And Lydian is by Warren Chappell, who studied in Offenbach in 1931/1932.
