Friedrich Kittler, Aufschreibesysteme 1800·1900, Korean edition, Paju: Munhakdongne, 2015. Offset printing, sewn hardback binding with dust jacket, page size 138 x 222 mm, 816 pp. Printed and bound by Yeongsinsa, Paju. Edited by Heo Jeong-eun.

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.
