Slanted Shopping Thursday

Typotopografie, Symbolwelt Bangladeschs & 20+1

Author: Isabella Krüger

Today is a perfect day to browse across our Slanted Shop and discover new publications. Therefore we present you three books of August Dreesbach Velag, which might be worth a look.

This volume of the series “Typotopografie” gives an insight into the cultural melting pot of the city. One learns something about the Lilangs, Shanghai style, emoticons and up-and-coming type designers. This special project could be realized in cooperation with Roman Wilhelm, part of the group “Shanghai-Flaneur.”
Typotopografie, 7: Shanghai at Slanted Shop, 80 pages, 19,5 × 29,5 cm, 14,80 €.

In Symbolwelt Bangladeschs, Yasmin Karim roams the populous country and encounters not only lavishly decorated rickshaws, but sometimes even a white bull, the mount of the god Shiva. Delicately illustrated and sensitively explained, it allows a glimpse into the kaleidoscope of unknown symbols of different peoples and religions in Bangladesh.
Symbolwelt Bangladeschs at Slanted Shop, 156 pages, 17,7 × 12,7 cm, 19,80 €.

One sans serif font for every year, that makes twenty-one (20+1) fonts! A book for all those who use sans serif fonts every day, who are perhaps still searching for the right one and who have always wanted to lose themselves in the small, fine, but decisive differences, but also to find them again.
20+1. Ein Vergleich von ausgewählten serifenlosen Schriften der letzten zwanzig Jahre at Slanted Shop, 144 pages, 21 × 30 cm, 18,00 €.
