    Addendum is an Austrian print magazine published by QuoVadisVeritas (QVV). QVV is a media and research platform, financed by Red Bull founder Dietrich Mateschitz.

    The magazine’s layout was developed by the New York-based agency Sagmeister & Walsh. Title and headlines are set in the characteristic font Larish Alte. Sagmeister and Larish Alte have both Austrian origins. The Vorarlbergian Sagmeister started his career in Vienna. Larish Alte is a renewal of Plinius, a typeface developed in the early 20th century by the Viennese calligrapher and designer Rudolf von Larisch.

    On the inside, the magazine shows two very different fonts: The sans serif Mériva is a rather new, affordable, and relatively unknown font and comes with headstrong details which pay tribute to the early grotesque typefaces of the 19th century. The serif Lexicon No. 2 is a classic, exclusive, world-famous font, and a role model of Dutch type design. The layout uses these two fonts to differentiate between special issue (Mériva) and general content (Lexicon).
