Over a five-year period, a modest poster board hung in a Minneapolis neighbourhood; it became a barometer for experimental typographic practice within the global design community. This dense volume documents the entire project, which was curated by Erik Brandt, and features works ranging from well-known designers to talented students. Conceptually approached like the ‘Ficciones Typografika’ project, the book is an expressive and visceral experience, rather than an encyclopaedic documentation. It reproduces every installation of work along with an overprint of the original posters. With a text by Ben DuVall and a conversation between Brandt and Paul Schmelzer.
