Slanted 24: Istanbul

Typography magazine Slanted, since 2005, is published biannually and combines the sectors typography, (graphic-) design, illustration and photography.

Istanbul – the city on the Bosphorus – is famous for its countless minarets, magnificent palaces, colorful markets and traders, seagulls and stray cats. Istanbul is the only metropolis in the world that unites two continents. Traditional crafts collide with a young and blossoming art and design scene, which is slowly changing the face and image of the city.

Central in the new Slanted takes is contemporary design work in this cultural melting pot city that balances between the Orient and the Occident. On their one-week-trip the magazine met 15 design studios and produced comprehensive studio portraits which provide a vivid and up-to-the-minute picture of the scene.

The seperate booklet that is added, “Contemporary Typefaces”, presents fourteen recently published typefaces we think are important and interesting: Alverata (Gerard Unger / TypeTogether), Anisette (Jean François Porchez / Typofonderie), CA Recape (Thomas Schostok / Cape Arcona Type Foundry), Cardea (David Cabianca / Emigre), Euclid Flex (Swiss Typefaces design team / Swiss Typefaces), Karol Sans (Daniel Sabino / Type-Ø-Tones), Laski Slab (Paula Mastrangelo, Ramiro Espinoza / ReType), Lava (Peter Biľak / Typotheque), Muriza (Jakob Runge, Jürgen Schwarz / type me! fonts), Noe Display (Lauri Toikka / Schick Toikka), Quire Sans (Jim Ford / Monotype), Square Sans (Panos Vassiliou / Parachute), Version 1 International (Oliver Jeschke, Oliver Mayer / VolcanoType), Walmer Marker (Jarno Lukkarila /Typolar).

Highly recommended.
