This is something for the typography enthusiasts amongst us: After enjoying their 2005/2006 issue, I recently received my copy of the 2007/2008 catalogue from the Hermann Schmidt Verlag Mainz — it’s free and a great resource for inspiration in both typography and grafic design.
Every second year, they spend a part of their summer in order to create the next masterpiece with great attention to details. Last time 60g paper with a cover made of bright orange linen, this time heavy 135g paper bound into a silk cover with a nicely woven pattern.
I like flipping through the pages and perhaps reading a little bit here and there — these catalogues are a pleasure for the eyes and provide great haptic experiences. They’re cram-full with ideas and therefore a well beloved tool to gather typographical inspiration and new ideas for your next graphic design project.
Have a shot at it and order your copy: Typographie.de
UPDATE: They take orders via e-mail,
unfortunately I don’t know whether they’re shipping abroad. I’ll ask them — in the meantime, you can only submit your address via email@example.com with the subject “Gesamtverzeichnis 2007/2008”.
