In the attic of the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, a unique collection had been lying forgotten, untouched for more than 50 years. Consisting of graphic design journals, cases of metal and wood type, books, correspondences between world-famous designers, type catalogues and printing machines dating back to the last century, the collection is now on view in Norway. If you cannot make it to Oslo, be sure to check out the interactive website, which includes images and videos that flip through select books.

INFOMANIACS

We had the pleasure of publishing parts of Matthew Thurber’s INFOMANIACS as a web comic last year, and today we are very excited to see the full story in a hardcover book.
