Andrew Steeves relied on Neacademia for the heavy-lifting in John Steffler’s 333-page strong novel German Mills, the story of an 18th-century fortune-seeker, who’s leaving behind his German home to embark on a journey into the American wilderness. The typeface is used for the jacket and throughout the book, where the skilfully placed typography is accented with woodcut illustrations by Jack McMaster. The composition of the cover is based on a woodcut title page from a 1788 German-language almanac printed in Halifax, with title and author in Lucida Blackletter.
Designed and typeset by Andrew Steeves in Neacademia by Sergei Egorov. Jackets printed on a Vandercook press using St. Armand Canal paper. Gaspereau Press, Kentville, Nova Scotia.
