Slanted Magazine Issue 14
While Slanted #13 dealt with contemporary and historical humanist grotesque fonts, Slanted #14-Grotesque 2 focuses on current fonts that are in tradition of Lineal, Neo-or Geometric Grotesque.
They mainly have their origins in the time of the turn of 19th to 20th century.
In 1880 Ferdinand Theinhardt designed the Royal Grotesque with four weights for the Königlich-Preussische Akademie zu Berlin, from which developed the Akzidenz Grotesque in 1918.
Simultaneously, from 1905 to 1930, Morris Fuller Benton created fonts on the basis of Lineal Neo-grotesque: the Lineal Grotesque.
Nowadays there can be observed different procedures of designing fonts, which can be named as quotations. A variety of fonts bear on historical models.
Slanted presents a huge number of these corresponding and related grotesque fonts, illustrations and projects. The type essays by Flo Gaertner (Karlsruhe), Robert Schumann (Berlin) and Anna Sinofzik (London) deal with them.
