The “Brocken” (chunk or brick) is a monumental notebook by Studio Grau – a homage to their favourite medium: paper. As if cut from stone, it is a design object, sculpture and utilitarian object all in one and offers plenty of space for thoughts, drawings and everything that wants to be treasured.
It is opulent in a minimalist way and you don‘t want to put it from your hands. The soft grey paper of the inside pages, the hot-foil embossing on the cover and the print on the book edges make it a tactile experience. The name says it all: 1,000 pages and a weight of 1.3 kilos. The flexible spine and a high-quality adhesive binding allow it to open flat.
What better to use than Good Type Foundry's Good Sans? The design agency’s corporate typeface is used boldly on the notebook, showcasing the beauty of Good Sans in 110 pt.
