Free adaptation of The Next Call #05 magazine by H. N. Werkman published in June 1924. Printed in two colors, 8 pages and 40 copies. 10¾ x 8½ in. (27,4 x 21,5 cm.)
On page 2 of the original magazine an ampersand sign appears as a “typographical bird” perched on a vertical block in which 2 letters “j” help to give a monumental character to the whole thing. The same sculptural treatment of typography is repeated on pages 5 and 7. Another of the unique elements of the publication is a Dadaist text on the third page that ends being the fundamental element of the interpretation.
In this case a summary of the main elements is proposed in which the printing density of the text mentioned- is reproduce as the central element kipping the hierarchical criteria of the original- found its counterpoint in chromatic touches of the background structure, which plays back again the idea of “typographic sculpture” using blocks and some letters such as E and Z, the same main elements that appear in the original.
