Copy, right? / Geometric sans!

Back Download

These publications harmoniously merge texts by design critic Markus Frenzl with designs by Antonia Henschel. Humorously interpreted, the book “Copy, right?” is dedicated to the topic of design plagiarism documented by the case in point, the Backenzahn stool from 1996. Highlighting the history of the font Futura, the book “Geometric sans!” shows how playful and fascinating typography can be. All letters are visualised alphabetically by using the simplest finds from the Bauhaus DIY store. Geometrically exact and based on the original drawings of Futura, this book is also a tribute to a typographical success.
