This Morning...

Arrived in Berlin last night...was supposed to meet family here, but their flight was cancelled until 11am the next morning. But it was probably for the best as they would most likely have got bored whilst I spent over an hour in Pro Qm this morning — the most incredible design bookshop...ever. Its bursting at the seems with not just design books, but an extensive collection of weird magazines, journals and stacks of self-published stuff. I felt quite dizzy.
I ended up buying this...

I'm not quite sure where it comes from or who makes it as all the info text in the back is in another language (possibly korean? thats a complete guess) but this issue features the work of students from the Werkplaats Typografie (two year masters program in Arnhem, in the Nederlands which is actually where Marijke Cobbenhagen and Chantal Hendriksen studied incidentally, see post below).
It's very nice!
