A small Spanish publisher, Kroeneck Wallis, has a Kickstarter for a new version of Isaac Newton’s Principia Maethematica. As you can see from their Instagram account, the finished product is going to be beautiful. The publishers are making some interesting design choices, including producing a separate book for each of three chapters of the original, using a visible binding that leaves the spine bare, the use of just two colors (petrol blue and coral orange) and a low contrast serif font.
As of this writing, the Kickstarter is already a third complete, with over three weeks left. There are a number of support options, starting with a single copy at just €45.
