Hardcover Paperback
Editions:  Fourth Fifth

The making of the fifth edition of The Form of the Book by Jan Tschichold

Overview• Process

Preparing another edition of the famous book. There are no mistakes that need fixing, we just need to update all the formal information: publishing year, ISBN code and other data in the colophon.

This time the book will come out without a dust jacket, so we need to rework its design into the book’s cover. Typesetting the cover and trying it on the real book to test it out.

Maybe, we can typeset the text about the author in a more fun way?

No, looks too unceremonious. The book asks for a strict design.
