Type Life: Issue #2 - SangBleu Typeface Legacy
Lovers of type, rejoice!
Swiss Typography presents a cornucopia of visual inspiration that will warm the cockles of a typographer's heart, with insights into their cosmos of style, fonts, and fashion. Readers will find both Rihanna and Rudolf Koch, social media snippets juxtaposed with engravings from the Caslon type foundry, and a douk-douk knife next to a 15th-century Danse Macabre.
At the center of Issue #2 is Sang Bleu. Sang Bleu is both the name of a typeface from Swiss Typefaces, and an independent multi-disciplinary media platform and creative agency.
As in the first issue, Type Life showcases plenty of letterforms as well as a contribution by a guest artist, Studio Jimbo from Paris. The issue is printed in seven Pantone spot colors.
Designed, edited, and art directed by Swiss Typefaces
