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.
