Sociotype #2

Regular price

Sociotype Journal is packed with thoughts on culture and society. It also happens to be a type specimen.

Issue #2 of Sociotype Journal, titled 'Makeshift', is an investigation of old things made new and new things made weird; a celebration of ingenuity on the hoof and ad hoc creativity under extraordinary circumstances. Typeset entirely in Sociotype’s Rework.

Join Sociotype as they dig deep into the underground world of hobby tunnelling with the Mole Man of Hackney and go vert skating with Alvar Aalto. Come wander cowpaths of desire, shotcrete-encrusted mountainscapes, and the improvised landscapes of civil unrest. With Gorpcore upcycling, kintsugi-style vehicle repair, amateur conservation and serial art vandalism, they look for life in the wreckage and new meaning amid the rubble.

Issue #2 features twelve essays, seven image-led articles, and a twenty four page technical type specimen.
