|Size||24 × 17 cm|
This issue of Works That Work explores creativity on the edge of legality and beyond. We look at how international borders are enforced and also broken, what defines the idea of original or fake, how our lives are shaped by our belief in the authenticity of official documents, how prisoners make their lives more bearable by making imaginative inventions from contraband, and how creating your own currency can be a rewarding way to protect local areas.
Metro Letters documents the responses to the question ‘Can a typeface express what is unique about a city’, presenting the projects and interviews with six invited typographers highlighting their working process and conceptual proposals. Includes essays by Gail Swanlund and Michael Worthington.
