The second issue of Type Life brings a cornucopia of visual inspiration. Swiss Typefaces presents insights into their cosmos of style, fonts, and fashion. This is the only place where you’ll find both Rihanna and Rudolf Koch, and where photos of contemporary art and streetwear are framed by engravings from the Caslon foundry. Type Life doesn’t make many words, and instead shows plenty of letterforms. Printed in six Pantone colors, it features mirrored words, slanted letters, gradients and all the other things your design prof wouldn’t approve of.

At the heart of this issue is Sang Bleu – the name both of a typeface and of a creative agency. Over the past decade, the two have built a legacy together. Shown are fonts that debuted in the Sang Bleu magazine, some of which later were released by Swiss Typefaces, and others that remained private. Custom typefaces designed for Vogue appear next to the experimental script variant SangBleu Snakes, followed by a stunning guest contribution from the Paris-based Studio Jimbo. Type Life #2 is made perfect by an introduction to the all-new SangBleu typeface and the accompanying printed book that showcases its 5 collections and 45 styles, released in October 2017.

PERIOD Zine Issue #4

PERIOD. is a zine by Lena Modigh hat unapologetically focuses on the contemporary female narrative by female-only contributors.

For the fourth issue of our journal, we decided to go where relatively so few women have gone before – SPACE. Space is defined as being 100 kilometres or 60 miles above the surface of the Earth, and about 550 people have been there. Of those, 57 have been women.

We thought we were going to be getting a lot of landscapes and interiors from our contributors but as you can see, the majority of these female responses were about people: inner space or the space between us maybe? And no one did outer space, the big universe, we emailed NASA, but they never got back 😉

Contributors include Martha Cooper, Kate Monro, Erna Klewall, Lena Modigh, Yasmine Ganley, Lara Minerva, Jessica Buie, Erin Sanders-McDonagh, Matilde Søes Rasmussen, Perdita Fenn & Julia Cody.

Spring/Summer 2017

Log 40 assembles a wide-ranging collection of thoughtful essays on some of the most urgent questions and debates in architecture today, bringing them into dialogue with those of architecture’s recent past. The legacy and current status of architectural images are considered from radically different vantages, in Brett Steele’s anecdotal discourse on Zaha Hadid’s 1983 painting The World (89 Degrees), John May’s exacting dissection of “architecture after imaging,” and Hana Gründler’s exploration of the ethical implications of drawing borderlines. The issue features commentary by two contemporary architects on contemporary buildings: V. Mitch McEwen on David Adjaye’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC, and Elisabetta Terragni on OMA’s Fondazione Prada in Milan. Other highlights include an excerpt from Noah’s Ark, the new collection of Hubert Damisch’s singular writings on architecture; a lively response by Mark Foster Gage to Michael Meredith’s recent Log essay on indifference; and a sampling of new domestic objects designed by architects.

In 1985, British movie director Terry Gilliam releases Brazil, a free adaptation of George Orwell’s novel 1984 (currently hitting again best-seller list in the USA). Borrowing its title from Ary Barroso’s song Brazil, after Gilliam allegedly heard it while scouting in a horrible small industrial town in the north of England, the movie is a fable about humanity’s alienation in contemporary bureaucratic and capitalist systems, and affirms the power of imagination, dream, and affect as potential tools of resistance and escape in a surrealistic, post-Monty Python tone.

2017: in Brazil, the repercussion of “Lava Jato Operation” now infiltrates all layers of the Brazilian upper class and beyond, and will likely force Michel Temer, Brazil’s coup-monger president, to move out of the presidential house imminently, and this time, not because of alleged ghosts. The “Brazilian Miracle” is definitely outdated, and the major non-Hispanic country of Latin America is experiencing the worst political and institutional crisis of its history. On the other hand, a national council of Mexican indigenous groups backed by the Zapatista rebels just selected Maria de Jésus Patricio Martínez, a Nahua woman, as the country’s first indigenous presidential candidate. This as Mexico is said to enter the world’s 10 largest economies in the next few years, dangerously challenging its northern neighbor, for better or for worse.

Cards are shuffling quickly in the Americas and it seems that what we once expected from the north or the south might soon not matter anymore. Could it be time to reconsider our origins, to invent a new future, to finally get rid of our displaced modern ambitions and appropriate critically the performance of the exotic that cursed us for so long? In this issue of Terremoto, we will talk about places which don’t really exist as such, identities traded for others, landscapes that imprison us or, on the contrary, set us free, trying to set our landmarks aside as we look for a path towards new forms of consilience.

For its 5th issue, Collection revue has changed its subtitle from the previous “A magazine around contemporary drawing” to a more simple “9 conversations”. The issue is still a direct extension of the previous ones: engaging in conversations with artists who would not have the occasion to be reunited elsewhere than on these pages. Alongside the artists, the issue features graphic designers bridging the realms of technology and emotion, materialist publishers and a group of skaters turned gallerists.

Featuring: Ernest T. / Taroop & Glabel, Galerie 126, Yannick Val Gesto, Sarah Tritz, Stefanie Lienzos, Masanao Hirayama, Maximale, Éditions Matière, Aidan Koch.
