The focus of this year’s Festival Rümlingen was the Swiss author Robert Walser, who wrote pages and pages of texts in a tiny, almost illegible script. At first glance, the sheets look as if they consist only of grids and areas. In the design of the book, Neeser & Müller aimed to reproduce a similar aesthetic by incorporating grid elements and using a special layout. The book is set in Rekja designed by Anton Studer. The title is rendered in caps from several weights of Britannic.
