Karel Teige. Fanfarlo / Charles Baudelaire. Odeon, 1927

“The conclusion to Teige's most important study of typography is made up of notes on his own work. He considered book covers to be similar to posters with their striking colors and basic geometric figures, where orthogonal surfaces are best served by orthogonal forms and where the circle acts as the figure most pleasing to the eye .”
