    It took me a while to identify this excellent Albertus-flavored typeface by Sandrine Nugue, but I’m glad I did! Check out the huge cast of alternate characters she designed for Infini on her website. The roman caps used in the top right corner are from Lyon, which is also the typeface used for the text of the book.

    This new translation of the Aeneid by David Ferry (b. 1924) was published by the University of Chicago Press in September 2017. The jacket design and artwork, as well as the book itself, are all by Matt Avery.
