The book read+play is not only an introduction to typography, furthermore it is a navigator through the knowledge of Typography. In a wide sence, it can be seen as an encyclopedia of books, which supports students of the first semesters and graphic design beginners, by creating the connection between evolutionary and political aspects, style development and the position of typography in art. r+p was written by Prof. Ulysses Voelker in 2011.
In March 2014 the Hermann Schmidt Publishers Mainz decided to publish a updated Version of the Book, so Prof. Voelker initiated a pitch for a new design concept. The book you see here is my concept for the pitch.
Right now I am working with him and another student on the actual book which will be published in March 2015.
