Only 150 copies of “Relativity: the Special and General Theory”, the 1920 English edition have been printed this 2021.
We designed a small, A5 format book (148.5 x 210 mm – 5.8 x 8.3 inches), of about 100 pages, with a neat, modern design.
The cover consists of the preface that Einstein wrote using a digitalized version of his own calligraphy.
“In a joined effort, creators Harald Geisler and Elizabeth Waterhouse, spend over 7 years on finalising the project. It was made possible with the help of the Albert Einstein Archive, the Albert Einstein Estate, and funding by a successful Kickstarter Campaign of 2,334 backers.
The outcome was worth the effort: a font unprecedented in aesthetic technique and a benchmark for handwriting fonts.”
