Brochure

The book series “Typotron-Hefte” has been published by the Swiss printer Typotron AG, based in St.Gallen, for already 22 years. Individual issues of “Typotron-Hefte” have differing themes mostly on St.Gallen. The latest issue focuses on St.Gallen’s Natural History Museum and its collection of rare shells. The theme inspired us to choose a special assortment of different types of paper and colours to give the reader a tangible sense of texture and colour as they relate to the giant clam. The cover, for example, is printed on a riffled paper to suggest the texture of the valve. The colour also has been carefully chosen to emphasise this textural association. The following pages use a very light, soft and opaque paper to suggest the shellfish’s flesh. We have treated the photography-section in the centre of the book as the book’s “pearl”.
