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.)
