- The Revolution wont be set in Garamond. Slanted Magazine #11 - Monospace, Typewriter comes in revised structure and layout. Projectsare confronted with each other, magazine sections overlap. The changesreflect our attitude towards contemporary editorial design in analogueand digital times. This new order is a homage to the visual and todesign. Orientation, information and sections still have their ownright and place within the magazine's structure, but the changing ofperspectives, the relations and associations are definitely not anexpression by the medium of information, rather of openness andexamination. It's a concept that doesnt come under the hegemony offunction, a feast of the visual.
With great pleasure we present the work of studio Moiré(Zurich/CH), the photographic essays Images from the Dark Side byMartin Miller (Baltimore/USA) and A Crude World by Paolo Woods(Paris/FR) as well as contemporary typefaces, illustrations andprojects related to monospace and typewriters. Type essays by AlexanderNegrelli (Berlin/DE) (the magazine's title is borrowed from his essay),Rieke Harmsen (Munich/DE) and Horst Wöhrle (Esslingen/DE) examine theaesthetics, history and connotations of typewriter fonts, interviewswith Yves Peters (Sint-Denijs-Westrem/BE), Richard Kegler(Buffalo/USA), Georg Seifert (Berlin/DE) as well as a Tokyo report byIan Lynam (Tokyo/JP) and a musical travelogue by DJ Frank Wiedemann(âme / INNERVISIONS, Berlin/DE) round up the stuff to read.
