Page 27 – Zombie Dog.

Designed & typeset by Gergő Gilicze, this page uses Sans Condensed wood type, with the word ‘Zombie’ in six different typefaces and set at angles. This page is printed in a split-fount blend of pale grey and white so as to fade into the Colorplan Mist paper onto which it is printed.
