Gratuitous Type 1 + 2 | Elana Schlenker




Gratuitous Type is a pamphlet of typographic smut. Celebrating the letter in all its forms, GT focuses its dirty mind on typography, art, language and publishing.

Issue 1 was released in winter 2011 and features work from Alexis Anne Mackenzie, Buchstabenmuseum, Chicago…Times…Trixie, Christian Hansen, David Smith Atelier, Evelin Kasikov, and Triboro. The issue includes a 12 page centerfold of Cuban Book Covers of the 60s and 70s and is finished with a hand-applied and numbered belly band. Printed offset in an edition of 500.

Issue 2 will be released this week and features Astrid Stavro, Buffalo Zine, El Celso, Damien Gautier (Éditions 205), Kathryn Murray, Martine Mathijsen, Rob Lowe (Cagoule, Anorak, Fire & Knives), Visual Editions, and Wayne White. The issue includes a screenprinted insert hand-lettered by Kathryn Murray, and a special peel-out centerfold project from Mark Pernice. Printed offset in an edition of 1000. Each issue is hand-numbered.
