    The original “Reklameschrift” weight of Block with alternate ‘a’ and ‘n’ as shown in this specimen.

    More about the book on Brain Pickings:

    “…what the media missed at first was that the cookbook was arguably the greatest artistic prank of the twentieth century — it wasn’t a populist effort to upgrade mass cuisine but, rather, a highbrow quest to raise the nation’s, perhaps the world’s, collective artistic consciousness.”
