The Theaterplatz is Weimar’s central square. It unites Weimar Classicism, the Weimar Republic and the Weimar Bauhaus. “This book is a snapshot and motion study, a protocol of urban development and a photographic essay, a collage …” — mottodistribution.com.
Weimar Theaterplatz was published by M Books.
For the two-colored cover design, Tobias Dahl made use of Euclid and its alternate contructivist double-storey ‘a’. The text typeface in the interior looks similar to Plantin Infant, or Galaxie Copernicus with its Schoolbook alternates for ‘a’ and ‘g’ (but not ‘y’) — however, I am not quite sure about that.
The unidentified text typeface is Caudex by Hjort Nidudsson.
Thanks for the post!
Tobias, thank you very much for chiming in and identifying the typeface. I wouldn’t have guessed.
Good grief, Caudex is not exactly a beauty! Did it work for you? Glyphs like ‘Q’ or the spine of ‘S’ suggest this ‘open’ freebie started out by butchering Palatino.
