Supertypes! For the Power of Typography (Spanish original: Supertipos! Por el Poder de la Tipografía) is a small yet compact yearbook which contains over 100 work samples of young Argentinian graphic design students.
Edited in 2014, the annual showcases the results of one of the many projects developed for the two-semester typography class at the University of Buenos Aires. On its 200 pages, it documents two months of processes and features the works of 140 students.
Each page contains a brief personal synthesis of the student’s statement: a textual map developed within a super-hero topic. It is a textual and typographic project which needs no images at all. The entire book is screen-printed and handbound.
Poplar, Flama and Univers were used for the covers and the general interior design. The student works also use Univers and Flama, and, additionally Akzidenz-Grotesk, Benton Sans, Detectives Inc., Fishmonger, and Gotham.
