    Paperback edition featuring Epoque.

    Art Nouveau is a book about the international style of art, architecture, and applied art, edited by art historian Uta Hasekamp. The book was published by Könemann in a multilingual edition, with texts in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Dutch.

    While the hardcover edition (2018) had Arnold Böcklin – the typographic synonym for Art Nouveau – on the cover, the design of the paperback version (2019) went with something that is less predictable and still appropriate: Epoque is a contemporary typeface inspired by the typography of the 1890s to 1910s, designed by Rafael Ferreira and released by Rafaeiro Typeiro in 2018. Epoque is used in all caps, with several of its many alternate glyphs, including the asymmetrical A, the “kicking” R, the descending T, and the staircase E.
