This book was designed for the historical abbey library of St.Gallen. The objective was to reflect the historical tradition of the abbey and to combine it, at the same time, with contemporary design. For this purpose, a subtle typeface with classical proportions was selected which stands in coherent contrast to the unconventional layout of the footnotes. Supported by bold colours this book proves to be a successful synthesis between tradition and modernity.
