Bibliotheca Design Notes

A few highlights about the design:

  • Time-tested typographic methods geared toward an exceptionally fluid reading experience: optimal type size, line length (words per line), leading (space between lines), and margins
  • Original typeface, designed and "set apart" exclusively for Bibliotheca—traditional, clean and legible
  • Original, classically proportioned, sans serif typeface for titles
  • Separated into novel-size volumes (the shortest at around 450 pages, and the longest at around 650 pages)
  • Page proportion and text block based on the dimensions of the Ark of the Covenant as specified in Exodus (the actual size of the page is 5.25 x 8.75 inches)
