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.

Acorde wins Communication Arts Award of Excellence

Communication Arts has been publishing annuals showing the best in visual communications from around the world since 1959. But still 2011 marks a change. It is the first time – and certainly the beginning of a long tradition – of publishing a distinct annual specifically focused on typography.

The Communication Arts Typography Annual 1 presents the best work in various typographic categories such as books, periodicals, identity, packaging, and typeface design. It is a brilliant achievement that Acorde was among the first typefaces receiving the Communication Arts Award of Excellence in this category.
