Frans Budé is a Dutch poet and writer. His poetry evokes silence: He uses few words, a lot of white space, sparse punctuation, large numbers of unfinished sentences free of immediate context, and many abstract rhythmic units. The typesetting here interacts with the content; the words and phrases echo in the background. For the typeface, we used FF Seria, a font with a serene effect. The cover was printed with a custom mixed spot color.
