I was commissioned to design vol. 1 of Carved Names, a two-volume work about a WW2 monument at ELTE university in Budapest. The books are bi-lingual, featuring content in Hungarian and English. Each volume was produced in two versions: edge-painted and edge-chiselled.
Vol. 1 (white), designed by Ákos Polgárdi, presents the entries submitted to ELTE's architectural competition for designing the monument, complete with project documentation and plans/illustrations, essays by ELTE students reflecting on the entries, interviews with the designers, a photo documentation of the realized monument, a type specimen of Trefort Grotesk, the monument's bespoke typeface, as well as the names and basic biographical data of the victims. Vol. 2 (black), designed by Zalán Péter Salát and Dániel Németh, contains the proceedings of a conference held on the occasion of the monument's inauguration.
