Bulletin 2 – 2017
31 October

Dear Readers,

On 13 October Unterweiss participated as visitor at the Frankfurter Buchmesse, the most important international trade fair for the publishing industry. Though we did not have our own physical stall, we were well represented by Marjanne van Helvert’s book The Responsible Object, recently selected as one of the 33 Best Dutch Book Designs of 2016. We are very proud of this project and we want to again thank Valiz for the collaboration.

In order to better manage how we communicate with you, our next bulletin will be sent out using Mailchimp. Even though we are very aware of the sensitive topic of how data can be and is used by online services, by doing so we then fall into the orbit of their privacy policy. We do not want to impinge on any subscribers’ rights, nonetheless please understand that it is very difficult for us to manually send out large quantities of email without using such a service. Since it is ultimately your choice, if you do not want us to pass your email address onto Mailchimp, please unsubscribe before Sunday 10 December by replying to this message writing “unsubscribe” in the subject line of the email.

Please note that by unsubscribing, not only will you miss our small updates but also being notified of the free content we are going to occasionally publish. Indeed, the next bulletin will announce an interview with Dr Martin Mäntele, Director of the HfG-Archiv in Ulm, on graphic design and society. The release of this content is our way of engaging with you meaningfully without always asking for payment, and we do not want you to miss out.

Bulletin 3 – 2017 is scheduled to be released on Tuesday 12 December.
