it´s niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

(press release)
In “Heavy Metal. Lovers.” we look into blackletter fonts and their modern applications. Slanted presents the innovative work of Invisible Creature (Seattle), historic type-treasures from the archives of Linotype (Bad Homburg) and Klingspor Museum (Offenbach), the photo documentation “True Norwegian Black Metal” from Peter Beste (New York) etc. …

The sections “Fontlabels, Fonts & Families,” “Fontnames Illustrated” and “Typolyrics” introduce contemporary blackletter fonts and designers from all over the world (e.g. Aeronaut/Georg Herold-Wildfellner, SAR-Lupe/David Millhouse, Adso/Bruno Bernard), followed by interviews with Alejandro Paul, Bernard Stein, Alex Trochut and Christophe Szpajdel and an interesting type essay by Horst Wöhrle.

Furthermore Slanted Magazine introduces numerous (blackletter-)projects of professionals and students (Jeremy Hall, schmitz & wiesner, s=eee etc.).

The chapter introduction pages are decorated with Hubert Jocham’s headline-font “NeoThorn S10,” exclusively created for this issue in two styles. Our readers can get the beta-version of this brand new typeface for free. Furthermore Hubert Jocham created the text typeface “NeoText S10” which will be available at type foundry Volcano Type (www.volcano-type.de).

This issue completes our 4-part-poster-series and forms now the 4-word-sentence ”Porn 4 Type Lovers.”, a quote from Ivo Gabrowitsch (FontShop International) about Slanted.
