Looks like some sort of Akzidenz type grotesk but the /i/ has a rounded dot. Not sure why I don't know this one...
At first, I thought the font wasn't designed by Erik, since it didn't appear to match any of his output.

The font is called Real, and was designed by Spiekermann specifically for this project. You get it free when you buy the book.
Good reasoning... good sleuthing...
ah! makes sense, thanks!
