Verena Gerlach / New Book Design

Chambers Sans to the rescue.

Above: Verena Gerlach, cover for the Hatje Cantz Verlag’s, Art of Projection.

Typonauten: You must read this recent Soili Semkina’s interview with Verena
in Cafe Babel, which features some broad themes, from rescuing GDR type
specimens to contemporary observations like these: “In general, the uniqueness
of each country in the design is disappearing, since everybody is just copying from
each other and from the magazines where you see cool and slick design.”

Of course it starts innocently enough, with this priceless quote:
‘font design is a very white male heterosexual field’

Hup, Verena!
