    Endlich Sonne — Finally Sun: When TwoPoints.Net were commissioned to design a cover for Novum magazine, they drew inspiration from a group of German tourists getting a proper nata y fresa (“cream and strawberry”) at a terrace in Barcelona. The cover is printed with a special photochromic ink which changes its color when exposed to UV rays. As soon as you take your Novum issue out in the sun, the cover boy’s pale skin gets a serious sunburn.

    The modular high-contrast blackletter is TpDuro, designed by Juanra “Wete” Pastor and Martin Lorenz from TwoPoints.Net. It is available exclusively from Hype For Type.

    Ink by Printcolor, paper by Fedrigoni, print by Stainer.
