    The Shop Window Gallery is a public art space located on the main strip in the city of Trnava, Slovakia. The gallery, run by a local community of artists and activists, presents site-specific exhibitions and performances. This catalogue captures the first fifteen exhibitions presented in the gallery. It was produced with relatively low budget in an edition of one hundred books.

    Storm Type’s Academica is a digital interpretation of Academia, a winning contribution made by Josef Týfa for a competition aimed at new typefaces for scientific texts in 1967. The result of a cooperation between Týfa and František Štorm is Academica (with c) — a versatile serif that bears the liveliness of the letterpress era. It contains two text variants: book and regular, the former being the lighter one. Both are used in this publication.

    Schick Toikka’s Dia draws inspiration from early grotesque families, designed by different, mostly unknown authors. The type family adheres a different formal aspect in each weight. Black has the widest proportions, making it suitable for powerful headlines with great legibility in the small sizes.
