Christian Kracht paperbacks (Fischer, 2019–)

Thank you for documenting these cover designs here, Andreas! They’re quite an eye catcher. With its idiosyncratic shapes rooted in the 1980s, the custom typeface is a good fit for Christian Kracht.
As far as I can tell, New Asmyth stays fairly close to the original. Shown below is a glyph set for Asmyth Light as shown in a Mecanorma catalog. To my knowledge, it’s the only published typeface design by G. Evans. We had featured one in-use example for a record cover from 1983 on Fonts In Use before, see “Penelope Tree” by Felt.
