Slanted #19 / Magma Press Release Information


Slanted # 19 – Super Families organized a big family celebration. We are engaged in this issue with the large families (depending on the case, font families), and put their pedigrees an amazing range of variation of the day. They are characterized by a variety of cuts, which spread open to the extremes – a spectacle of Hairline to Ultra Black with compressed to extended because for everyone. In addition, immediate relatives are also represented in Sans Serif, Semi Serif, Slab, Rounded, etc..

In addition, we are pleased to present numerous essays and reports:
Unit Gothic & Uniform Set Gothic, wood type as precursor (David Shields Austin TX U.S.) About box (Frank Wiedemann, Berlin, Germany), Japanese Graphic Design: Not In Production (Ian Lynam, Tokyo, JP), on typographic super families (Julia tower, Berlin, Germany), as No One, but the cases for all!
