Posterzine™ Issue 36 Erik Spiekermann | PEOPLE OF PRINT
Pre-order, ships in August 2018
For an extremely special 35th issue of Posterzine we showcase the work of renowned German designer, writer and infamous typographer Erik Spiekermann. This "Don't work for assholes" issue has kindly been supported by MOO. Proceeds from Posterzine sales will go to Grafik in the hope of someday bringing it back into print, so please show your support and keep print alive!
He founded MetaDesign (1979) and FontShop (1988) and is behind the design of well-known brands such as Audi, Bosch, VW, German Railways and Heidelberg Printing to name a few. Erik was also managing partner and creative director of Edenspiekermann with an impressive international team with offices in Berlin, Amsterdam, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
In this fabulous issue, you can find an exclusive interview with Erik where he tells us why we shouldn't work for assholes with a glorious fold-out A1 version of his original letterpress printed poster.
This publication / poster is lithographically printed by Pressision Ltd onto quality G.F.Smith Naturalis paper using process black and warm red ink.
size: A1 (594x841mm)
Posterzine is where a poster meets a magazine — a mini monograph magazine which folds out to reveal a gorgeous A1 format poster (594x841mm). Posterzine is printed by Pressision Ltd using two special Pantone spot colours each time on Fedrigoni Arcoprint Extra White paper stock meaning that no two issues will look the same. It has been registered at the British Library as a magazine because of the way that it folds in on itself, differentiating it from a pamphlet which is folded like a concertina.
People of Print (UK), was originally created in 2008 by Marcroy Eccleston Smith, as a library of illustrators, designers and printers both creatively and commercially with the purpose of educating and inspiring.
