From New Directions:

Resonant of nineteenth-century village tales and of such authors as Adalbert Stifter and her contemporary Robert Walser, the stories in The Country Road are largely set in the Swiss countryside. In these tales, the archaic and the modern collide.

The cleaving of Cynthia Hollandsworth’s and Arthur Baker’s typeface only adds to the dueling quality of this “sans serif with serifs”—which accords nicely with the publisher’s observation of cultural and temporal collisions.
