    Journey by Moonlight by Antal Szerb

    These are beautiful books all around. Published in “handsome uniform trade paperback editions,” they have consistent covers, each featuring a painting or photo overlaid with the book’s title in FF Meta. The interiors are usually typset in Trump Mediaeval (the older editions) or Adobe Garamond Premier (for the most recently published), if not reproduced photographically from some original printing.
