The Last Books, Amsterdam, has just published a new edition of Peter Handke’s novel REPETITION. Ralph Manheim’s translation had gone out of print and Phil Baber negotiated the rights for this reprint. He designed the book, which has one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen. Powder blue, with the title foil-printed in a bright yellow that nonetheless feels subdued—has ever a book cover been so understated, so exquisite? The text is set in Bradford, a beautifully spare typeface designed by Laurenz Brunner.
