This weekend supplement of the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung was created for the Leipzig Book Fair and pays homage to the word. The letter is honoured as the smallest graphical unit for the designer and as the smallest unit of information for the author. Following the motto “A word is worth a thousand pictures”, the cover of this supplement features, besides the text, only individual, framed letters in different fonts, reflecting the spectrum of the design options. There are neither infographics nor photographs on the cover.
