Borys Kosmynka took us to the basement of the Book Art Museum in Lodz, where lies a treasure that was almost lost.

Local liquor stores can be the start of great things. For David Jonathan Ross they were the start of an in-depth exploration into the realm of vertical letterforms. His analysis of shop signage in the urban landscape, as well as the technical and aesthetic challenges when vertically drawing letters and setting type resulted in the typeface “Bungee”.
The annual PTSD-trigger for former type media students or super-happy-fun-time for everybody else with an intact work-life-balance and friends, is back. You guessed right; it’s TypeCooker™-Correction-Time again. Yaaay…
Just like a lot of other typographic phenomena, ligatures have their own haters and fanbase. Marko Jovanovac is part of the later. In his workshop he strikes a blow for unconventional connections, not only bringing letters, but also a lot of people together.
