This year cover is designed by Tom Lane known as Ginger Monkey. For every edition, I ask graphic designer and typographer to create unique font work. This year edition will feature unique designs by Salih Kucukaga, Nick Misani, Reno Orange, Keith Tatum / The Type Hunter, Jeff Trish, Stefan Kunz, Lauren Hom, Jef Millotte, Kelli Anderson, Francis Chouquet and Me!

For this year edition, we will use 2 ranges of eco-friendly papers developed by Favini. The REMAKE collection is high-end uncoated paper with a pulpy look. The special touch and the natural look of the paper are due to the up-cycling process which includes leather residues to substitute FSC cellulose and is produced with 100% green energy. The CRUSH collection is a range of papers made using process residues from organic products the replace to 15% of the virgin pulp. By-products from Kiwi, coffee, hazelnut or almonds. FSC certified, GMO free, this paper contains 40% post-consumer recycled waste and is also produced with 100% green energy. And as for the past 3 editions, and the posters, it will be a collaboration with Studio Pression!
