In addition to the Slanted blog and mag­a­zine, Slanted Publishers ini­ti­ates and creates pro­jects such as the Year­book of Type, tear-off cal­en­dars Typo­darium and Photo­dar­ium, in­de­pen­dent type foundry Vol­cano­Type and others. Slanted's pub­lish­ing pro­gram reflects their own di­verse in­ter­ests, focusing on con­tem­po­rary design and cul­ture, work­ing closely with editors and authors to pro­duce out­stand­ing pub­li­ca­tions with mean­ing­ful content and high quality.
These publications can be found in the Slanted Shop along­side other extra­or­di­nary products by young design talents and es­tab­lished pro­ducers from all over the world.

Slanted was born from great passion and has made a name for itself across the globe. Its design is vi­brant and in­spir­ing, its phi­los­o­phy open mind­ed, tolerant, and curious.
