Gratuitous Type Issue 4.5

The first in a new series of half issues from Gratuitous Type created to examine tangential subjects introduced in full issues of the magazine but not explored in detail in their pages. Issue 4.5 is a slim, 64-page saddle-stitched booklet, printed in the same copper ink used in its sister issue. Other elements from Issue 4—like typefaces and polka dots—have also been carried over to this publication, but evolved to give this reader its own unique identity.
