The Humanities Library’s design identity is centered around the dust jacket that partially exposes the cover: for each title, the same 474 × 270 mm sheet is folded at a different angle to make a unique, tilted-looking semi-jacket. The typography is different each time, depending on the title.

The jacket for this volume is set in two typefaces, following models discussed in the text: a Fraktur for the author’s name; and Akzidenz Grotesk Bold customized as a version of Stefan-George-Schrift for the original title.
