T.B.A. / Brochure


The publication »T.B.A.« contains ten rules by Kurt Tucholsky— written for businessmen that need to hire artists. These rules were (re)shuffled using a text generator and each of the 200 printed versions was laid out differently at the beginning and end of the publication—an allusion to the often chaotic beginning and ending of a business relationship.

»T.B.A.« is set in a typeface called »Mondra«—an anagram of »random«. To
imitate the appearance of handwriting, each stroke style and downstroke of
the characters was randomized in the publication. Just like actual handwriting, no two letters are identical.
