    “The book David Lynch: Lithos is a kind of sequel to its predecessor Dark Splendor, which we designed half a year earlier. Where Dark Splendor is a colorful journey through the manifold media of his creative work, Lithos is a real monograph focusing on David Lynch’s lithographs, mainly in black and white. Based on the type design we did for Dark Splendor and in combination with other type ideas we explored at that time we developed the font family Materia for the texts and the cover of Lithos. Instead of antique pink (as in Dark Splendor) this time the texts are printed on a soft blueish grey, reminding of the original color of the stones David Lynch uses for his lithographs.” — Koma Amok
