With projects such as the ‘New American Haggadah’ by Jonathan Safran Foer and Oded Ezer, or the ‘Alphabet Archive’ by House Industries – Slanted works with submissions relating to the theme at hand. The content comes from a wide range of countries, and in #20, for example, the first accepted submission from Nepal is published alongside an email from its designer.
This issue also continues the magazine’s partnership with the historical image library of Corbis NY: the photo story ‘Come On, Come All!’, for example, shows historical posters and photographs from the time of the American Gold Rush of the mid-19th century.
The magazine’s partnership with Corbis does not stop it showing photography from other sources: in the series ‘In a Window of Prestes Maia 911 Building’, Julio Bittencourt (São Paulo, Brazil) portrays individual fates and families living in poverty through the windows of an empty high-rise block.
Black bars reminiscent of slab serifs are used to structure the interviews, conducted, among others, by Julia Kahl with Morag Myerscough, Dan Reynolds with Dieter Hofrichter, Jan Middendorp with Bo Berndal and Lars Harmsen with Sylvia Lerch.
Incidentally, the front cover shows Hank Aaron in action after his 714th home run, and the other cover pages feature further photographs of sportsmen and sports in America. Many of the jerseys in these pictures are printed with – slab serifs.
