All styles are fully equipped with a huge character set and numerous OpenType features.
In addition there is also a bundle of the small packages of Acorde and Sindelar available. It consists of four styles of Acorde and four styles of Sindelar. It is more easily affordable than the full bundle but also offers great design possibilities and still decreases the price per style.

Acorde presents the most beautiful books of A/D/CH/NL
Like every year the Typographic Society Austria (tga – Typographische Gesellschaft Austria) shows the most beautiful books of Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands in cooperation with the Vienna Public Libraries and the Association of Austrian Book Trade.
The most beautiful books of 2011 can be seen in the Central Library in Vienna from December 5, 2012 to February 4, 2013. Once again (since its introduction last year) the exhibition design is entirely set in the type family Acorde. Since Acorde is used for small text (labels, signs, flyers) as well as for large headlines, the exhibition design is a good example of Acorde’s suitability for all different sizes.The flyer promoting the exhibition was designed by Austrian designer Erich Monitzer.
Josef Frank’s writings set in Acorde
The bilingual book Josef Frank: Writings is a complete collection of all published writings of Austrian architect Josef Frank, one of the main protagonists of Classical Modernism. It comes in two volumes and consists of nearly 900 pages in total. Since the whole publication is entirely set in Acorde, it is probably amongst the publications where Acorde’s workhorse qualities can be judged most easily.Both covers of the two-volume book show the enlarged signature of Josef Frank.
Various impressions of the publication on Josef Frank’s writings, designed by Peter Duniecki.
The two-volume book was designed by Austrian book designer Peter Duniecki who explains his choice of Acorde as follows. »Die verwendete Schrift spiegelt die Zeit der Wiener Moderne. Modern, klar, nicht so hart, runder, eben wienerischer als die Internationale Moderne. Ihre hervorragende Lesbarkeit würde Josef Frank zu schätzen wissen.« (The chosen typeface reflects the era of Viennese Modernism. Modern, pure, not so hard, rounder, just more Viennese than the International Modernism. Josef Frank would appreciate its outstanding legibility.)
