    This cover is for a collection of musical pieces written for the Oslo String Quartet (OSQ) and recorded over a long period – hence the title, Archive. It’s published through the independent music imprint, Fabra. This cover is for the digital release awaiting a physical release on CD later.

    All three styles from Triptych (Roman, Italick, and Grotesque) are used in a somewhat reversed typographic hierarchy on the front of this cover. Triptych is the brilliant work of the notorious Stefan Ellmer of The Pyte Foundry. Make sure to read up about the concept of this peculiar typeface family on The Pyte Foundry website.
