A pseudo-scientific research publication on sign painting in the Philippines. Contains graphic and text questionnaires filled out by 24 sign painters from Metro Manila and Samar Island. Includes over 10 stroke manuals as well as a series of writings on typography and culture. These include: a manifesto on slow vs. fast typography by Lobregat Balaguer (PH/ES), Veronica Grow (AU) and Niko Spelbrink (NL); an essay exploring identity politics and graffiti writing in the Philippines; and two special, syndicated case studies focused on indigenous type construction. The case studies are: “Nagari: Learning to Make Writing for Indian’s Biggest Script” by Catherine Leigh Schmidt (US) and “The Babel Issue” by Birk Marcus Hansen (DK), a bilingual typography experiment that combines Chinese and Roman characters.

Design by Dante Carlos and Kristian Henson.

For several years, Paul Kooiker and Erik Kessels have organized evenings for friends in which they share the strangest photo books in their collections. The books shown are rarely available in regular shops, but are picked up in thrift stores and from antiquaries. The group’s fascination for these pictorial non-fiction books comes from the need to find images that exist on the fringe of regular commercial photo books. It’s only in this area that it’s possible to find images with an uncontrived quality. This constant tension makes the books interesting. It’s also worth noting that these tomes all fall within certain categories: the medical, instructional, scientific, sex, humour or propaganda. Paul Kooiker and Erik Kessels have made a selection of their finest books from within this questionable new genre. Incredibly small photobooks is the second volume (after Terribly awesome photobooks) showing this amazing collection.
