Civilia. The End Of Sub Urban Man. A Challenge to Semidetsia was originally published by the Architectural Press in 1971, edited by Ivor de Wolfe, pen name of Hubert de Cronin Hastings. Artifice issued a facsimile reproduction in 2015.
The striking typeface is the caps-only Sculptura, designed by Walter Diethelm and released in 1957 by Haas. It can be described as a combination of two earlier and more popular shaded display faces by the same foundry: the narrow sans-serif letterforms are similar to Graphique (1945) while the contour styling is reminiscient of Profil (1946). Sculptura was digitally revived by Jason Castle in 2005.
