SPIN / Adventures in Typography 2 [Unit 36]
Design: Spin

Edition of 1000

Spin/Adventures in Typography 2 is serious and silly in equal measure (occasionally at the same time). The Spin team of Tony Brook, Claudia Klat and Jonathan Nielsen have embarked on a journey into typography’s darkest recesses.

Searching for the new and the surprising, they have made a series of experiments, by computer and by hand, that stretch the boundaries of typographic expression almost to breaking point.

Chapters in this 52pp journal include Alien: Future/Font: Lettuce/Letters; Helvetica Alt: Dr Frankenstein’s Helvetica; Helvetica est mort; and Tape Face. You have been warned.

SPIN – Adventures in Typography [Unit 31]

SPIN/Adventures in Typography [Unit 31]
Editors: Tony Brook & Adrian Shaughnessy
Design: Spin

Edition of 1000

Continuing the conversation started with the studio’s 2015 monograph SPIN 360° [Unit 19], SPIN/Adventures in Typography looks at the typographic flotsam and jetsam of Spin’s creative process; a repository for trains of thought, itches that needed to be scratched, as well as fresh new journeys.

Spread over 52 pages, SPIN/Adventures in Typography is a visual record of SPIN’s creative interests and outputs – combustive explorations not afraid to plunge into the abstract, teetering on the edge of legibility.

A journal boisterous with typographic riffs, remixes, and rearrangements – SPIN/Adventures in Typography is an invitation to engage in conversation, an ellipses rather than a full stop.
