Encyclopedia meets book design – discover the fascinating records of early lunar exploration and explore our natural satellite. This book project vividly demonstrates how a single text typesetting system can give an entire book its own encyclopedic feel.
Alegreya by Huerta Tipográfica (available from Google Fonts) was therefore the best choice with its generous styles, ligatures and details. Quite historical with accents of scientific books, but no longer interpreted literally, but rather in a contemporary typographic language. It lends itself well to all parts of the book to create a single-handed experience: marginalia in small caps and paragraphs as headings. Alegreya’s Regular style, with its dynamic and varied rhythm, makes the long texts easier to read. The bold variations elaborated for quotations and the detail typography of the appendix.
