Wahrheit und Methode

  • Book, 2012
  • Offset lithography, case binding, dust jacket
  • 2 volumes, page size 138 x 222 mm, 304 pp and 528 pp

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.

In the case of Wahrheit und Methode, the themes of intersubjectivity and intertextuality are expressed in the jacket’s typography, where the title letters are filled with another text: a list of references used in the book.
