Size
18×10.5 cm

Notes
One of the most beautiful book series of contemporary Italian publishing. The clean typographic layout recalls Einaudi Poesia, a paperback series designed in 1964 by Bruno Munari. Covers are entirely set in Massimo Vignelli’s Our Bodoni light, while pages are set in classic Einaudi Garamond. From top to bottom, the covers report the author’s name, book’s title, publisher’s mark, and an abstract. Paper is excellent as for all books by Einaudi. Covers are free from images and thus “attract the customer-reader for more verbal-content reasons than for images and colours” (Fabio Mercanti), yet the graphics plays a paramount role in giving an accurate identity and excellent aesthetic quality to the books.
