Gerhard Hanappi book set in Sindelar and Acorde

Now that’s a project we are really happy about. The book about famous Austrian football (soccer) player and architect Gerhard Hanappi is entirely set in Sindelar and Acorde. The book was designed by Austrian designer Peter Duniecki and published by the Swiss publishing house Park Books.

Why are we so happy about it? First, the book is really well designed, and second, we love football. As you may know, the type family Sindelar is named after famous Austrian football player Matthias Sindelar. Interestingly Sindelar and Hanappi played at the two rivalling Viennese Clubs Austria Wien and Rapid Wien (not at the same time though). The book achieves something that in real life is not very likely: One player of Austria Wien supports a project by a player of Rapid Wien. The result of this collaboration is really convincing. Just have a look yourself!

Definitely worth a read!

Paul T. Frankl’s autobiography entirely set in Acorde

Another great example of Acorde in use: Paul T. Frankl’s autobiography offers a unique insight into the rise of American modernism from an insider’s point of view. It sheds light on Paul T. Frankl and his contemporaries as well as on Austrian and American culture in the first half of the twentieth century.

The book was edited by Christopher Long and Aurora McClain and designed by Austrian book designer Peter Duniecki. It is entirely set in Acorde.
