Kafka covers by Peter Mendelsund

Kafka covers

How beautiful are these? I just happened to glance at the latest Fontshop News and these sprung into view. The designer is Peter Mendelsund and he talks all about the process here using the amazing typeface FF Mister K (by Julia Sysmäläinen and based on Kafka’s own handwriting – it has over 1000 glyphs!). Really nice combination of sharp structured graphics with immaculate choice of colour along with the use of the casual typeface, the eye unites the series but is individually adapted to each of the titles.
