    Graphic designer Catherine Gottraux Roos chose BVH BLine to typeset the titles of Le Gothique Urbain: Une crise d’identité(s), its roundness contrasting with the sharpness of all the blackletter shown (Goudy Text). This book by Philippe Buschinger is about the use of blackletter in the public space. The author analyzes the different uses of blackletter, as well as the effects caused by its use, sometimes funny, sometimes offbeat or anachronistic. The body copy is set in BVH Baldinger.

    The book was published by Cadrat Éditions in an edition of 150 copies, with a cover screen printed in a metallic Pantone spot color.
