Slanted #14 – Grotesque 2
While Slanted #13 dealt with contemporary and historicalhumanist grotesque fonts, Slanted #14 – Grotesque 2 focuses on currentfonts that are in tradition of Lineal, Neo- or Geometric Grotesque.

They mainly have their origins in the time of the turn of 19thto 20th century. In 1880 Ferdinand Theinhardt designed the RoyalGrotesque with four weights for the Königlich-Preußische Akademie zuBerlin, from which developed the Akzidenz Grotesque in 1918.Simultaneously, from 1905 to 1930, Morris Fuller Benton created fontson the basis of Lineal Neo-grotesque: the Lineal Grotesque. Nowadaysthere can be observed different procedures of designing fonts, whichcan be named as quotations. A variety of fonts bear on historicalmodels.

With great pleasure we present a huge number of thesecorresponding and related grotesque fonts, illustrations and projects.The type essays by Flo Gaertner (Karlsruhe), Robert Schumann (Berlin)and Anna Sinofzik (London) deal with them. Worth seeing photos storiesare “Almost Europe” by Miguel Hahn and Jan-Christoph Hartung (Frankfurtam Main) who visualize the situation of refugees in the Spanish enclaveMelilla, as well as »Ein Abend auf der Wiesn – Pictures taken duringthe great beer rush« by Volker Derlath (München). Numerous interviewswith Lizá Defossez Ramalho and Artur Rebelo (Porto), Edwin van Gelder(Amsterdam), Marta Podkowinska and Karol Gadzala (Krakow) and HansGremmen (Amsterdam) as well as an article about Kiyoshi Awazu as wellas the 4th part of the Tokyo Report, both by Ian Lynam (Tokyo) and amusical travelogue by Frank Wiedemann (Berlin) round up the stuff toread.

By the way: Slanted #13 and #14 are conceived as a double-issuefeaturing the wide field of grotesque fonts. The availability of issue#13 is limited. Get the last copies from our shop!
