Slanted #40 | Experimental Type
Slanted celebrate 40 issues with an experimental type special - and it is a thing of real beauty. Founded in 2005, Slanted have always had a finger on the pulse of the contemporary type landscape and this handsome tome is stuffed full of inspiration from across the globe.
The eight chapters cover some intriguing areas, including Tactile Realism that looks at adding material qualities to a typeface, Anti-Reader Friendly that questions ideas of legibility, Ever Changing that casts its eye over kinetic type examples and Off The Screen which looks at type freed from the flatness of the monitor.
Add to this eight essays on experimental typography, a alphabetical listing housing almost 240 participants and that beautiful hot-foiled cover design - and you've got a pretty essential snapshot, not just of the here and now, but also, perhaps, tomorrow.
A graphic design publication in which each issue takes a country/city/subject as a jumping-off point in which to examine the creative output. Combining highly visual content with essays and articles to the rear, Slanted is both for the eyes and the brain. And at almost 250 pages, both get a treat.
