Quandary is my 2nd typeface created for a horror theme in use with an illustrated book - 'The Predicament' by Edgar Allan Poe. It is intended as a highly expressive face to accentuate a sense of mystery and macabre. The single-weight uni-case font is developed from the numeric glyphs found on the astronomical clock-face in Prague's Old Town Square.

Fairly strange but still legible.
The astronomical clockface at Staroměstská Old Town Square.
The final book with exclusive typeface, illustration and binding.
Inside pages with more Quandary.
And illustration.
Prahaha is used as the bodycopy.
Open spine binding. 110x280(mm), 30pp, 60 copies. Offset printing at VSUP.
