    This series of books by Hermann Hesse was published by Bertelsmann Gütersloh as edition for book clubs – probably in the late 1970s. The multiline typeface is Blackline, designed by Wolf Magin in 1969 and released by H. Berthold AG in 1976.

      Florian, as usual, we are riding the same wavelength. I was just about to add these after I stumbled across them while researching other 1970s Hesse. Danke, especially for the Blackline background text.

      You’re welcome. I was sure you must have noticed these while looking for the Hesse covers, but when they didn’t appear with the others, I went ahead. It’s a pity that there are no better images available. We should do such ping-pong chain posts here more often!
