Adventice is a publication of observations, analysis and visual essays.It is independently published and distributed twice a year.
Adventice concentrates on the confrontation of different topics, highlighting the tension between conflicting subjects. Despite it being an art publication, it strives to create a dialogue between various fields. Authors such as writers, photographers, designers, biologists and illustrators explore the specificities of the given theme. The diverse approaches concentrate on the ungrateful and usually left aside aspects of the question.
Each issue focuses on the encounter of specific and precise disciplines, presenting several personal interpretations and contains an insert which
introduces an academical or scientific research. However our aim is not to give thorough knowledge, rather it is a specialized cultural publication. The project aspires to push the limits and even take on insignificant matters.

One week ago, I gave a lecture at the Gutenberg-Museum Mainz (Germany).
This event, called TYPO TALK – Gespräche über Schrift, was part of the exhibition ON-TYPE: Texte zur Typografie.
I presented the whole process behind the Euclid BP typeface, from the first idea in 2007 until the final release this Monday, via numerous steps, unreleased versions/fonts, inspirations, examples how beta versions used since 2009 were modified in the final retail version, my very own approach to type design as well as my feelings towards the actual type design scene, etc. Lots of stuff about Euclid BP were shared for the first time during my lecture.
Euclid BP is available for retail at a special price until next Monday (09.03.2012).
