>homas Bernhard, Autobiographische Schriften

We received a beautiful edition of books designed by Clemens Theobert Schedler, Thomas Bernhard, Autobiographische Schriften. It is a five books in a case, and the series won the State Award 2010 (Die Staatspreis 2010) at the Best Books of Austria (Die Schönsten Bücher, Österreichs).

The books feature prominently Plan Grotesque on the cover. The jury report reads:

The precise typographic implementation of the “Autobiographischen Schriften” does justice to Thomas Bernhard's literature in quite an extraordinary way, without deteriorating into stereotypes. The (contour of the) type area is unusual, and the ragged justification is not only extremely well implemented, but also corresponds perfectly to the style of personal writing.

See more details here. And congratulations to Clemens!
