Great typeface found in the wild

I was perusing the fine items at the superb Vancouver Store,  Old Faithful Shop. I happened across this book:

http://shop.gestalten.com/books/rock-the-shack.html 

I was instantly taken by the typeface used on the cover and throughout the publication. It’s a refreshing departure from the usual and I never would have guessed it would work so well in this application, but there it is…exceptional.

It didn’t take me long to track down the typeface. I noted that the book was published by Gestalten. Gestalten is a well known publisher, creative agency and I was aware they have designed quite a number of fonts. A quick trip to their website and bam, I found it!

It’s priced reasonably as well, 50 Euro. I look forward to working Caligo into an upcoming project!
