    L’écriture de l’ombre (“shadow writing”) is a book about graffiti photography, published by Editions Terrain Vague:

    The graffiti artists, by archiving their ephemeral productions, develop new photographic practices that Bernard Fontaine tries to define through an artistic and sociological analysis. In this essay, the photography of graffiti is brought to light thanks to a methodical and referenced reflection, which leaves the floor to different actors with unique approaches.

    Spectral by Production Type is used throughout the book design. Primarily intended for on-screen reading in web apps, Spectral has been designed with relatively wide spacing. For the use in print typography and especially in larger sizes, this has to be adjusted by applying some negative tracking, as designer Arthur Calame has done here. The text typography employs Spectral with its optional oldstyle figures.

    The title on the screen-printed cover features the lightest weight of the Spectral family. In a self-referential graphic allusion, it’s repeated a second time, black on black.
