The sophomore issue of Sociotype has arrived and is all about the makeshift: old things made new, and new things made weird. Inside, across twelve essays and seven image-led articles, you'll find Michael Wolf's photographic observations from the alleyways of Hong Kong, the rise of facadism in 21st Century architecture, modes of expression created in confinement, the underground world of hobby tunnelling, and a selection of murderabelia from the Unabomber's cabin.
If that wasn't enough, there's a twenty four page technical type specimen for 'Rework'; a sans serif superfamily inspired by the 19th Century descendants of a foundational sans serif model.
EDITION OF 1,500 COPIES 240 PAGES · 210 × 275 MM ISSN 2754-7698
Produced by the London-based type foundry that it shares its name with, Sociotype is a new platform for thoughts on culture and society, that also happens to be a type specimen.
