A supplement and translation of Romano Hänni's Typografische Notizen 2, published in 2010.

Summary: Seventeen years after creating the first part, the second part of Typographic Notes was produced in the years 2009/2010. After removing the dust jacket you can fold the pages out as one strip with a length of 336 centimeters. The strip is composed of four printing sheets. Its content deals with topics such as justice, perception, reality and mentalities. As a preamble, a part of Utopia written by Thomas Morus in the year 1516 is printed. In the text, the ruthless scheming of the rich is revealed. Today's manager capitalism is the result of this ruthless scheming, an economy of self-enrichment. The global exploitation of the people is carried out by private transcontinental companies of the industry, service, trade and banking sector. Profit is their religion, world domination their goal. -- from artist's web page.
