Augenmaß - Die Fähigkeit mit dem Auge Entfernungen einzuschätzen
Augenmaß (ger.: visual judgement)

This is one project I will show on the exhibition in Weimar this week.

I took the letters from an old stamp set (from around 1920) and digitalized them, so that they can be used on the computer. For the exhibition I created two typographic posters and one informational leporello.

Pictures of the exhibition starting on thursday will follow soon.

I´m excited for the exhibition next week.
This is one piece I will show there. A book about the discovery of the first pulsar by Jocelyn Bell Burnell. 
(better pictures will come soon)
I hope the semester break is coming quick :)
