Geohistoria de la Sensibilidad en Venezuela is the title of an impressive academic book. Álvaro Sotillo and Gabriela Fontanillas, both excellent typographers from Caracas, have created a complex yet highly subtle typography. The various elements of text information are differentiated from one another as minimally as is possible and as clearly as is necessary, complex yet very subtle typography. Diverse information is characterized just so as to make it clearly distinguishable. The book-designer has refrained from using colored type, working instead merely with small contrasts in size, thickness and highlighting. The manner of binding (Japanese fold) opens up a wonderful possibility for navigation through the book. Its front edge is graced by a subtle thumb index. The layout is open and flexible. The designer has not become constrained by his own mesh, as is so often the case with such a large number of illustrations.
