The Lonely Road Foundation is a South African charity, set up to support orphaned and vulnerable children in rural and underprivileged communities in South Africa. Photographer John Ross, working closely with the Foundation, travelled to Limpopo Province in South Africa to photograph the lives of nine different families. A photographic essay about each of the families highlights the tragedies, the challenges, the sadness and scarce moments of happiness that all the families experience. The photography and supporting narrative provides a harrowing insight into the problems that exist within these communities including HIV, poverty, malnutrition, parental neglect and lack of basics including water.
The Lonely Road book is the result of a collaboration between The Lonely Road charity, John Ross and Browns Editions, with the intention being to raise awareness and funds to change these children’s lives. Fundraising and book launch events are planned for Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa, Harvard Business School in the US and the South African High Commission in London.
All funding and proceeds goes to The Lonely Road Foundation.

The Typografische Monatsblätter is one of the most important journals to successfully disseminate the phenomenon of “Swiss typography” to an international audience. With more than 70 years in existence, the journal witnessed significant moments in the history of typography and graphic design. 30 Years of Swiss Typographic Discourse in the Typografische Monatsblätter examines the years 1960–90, that correspond to a period of transition in which many factors such as technology, socio-political contexts and aesthetic ideologies profoundly affected and transformed the fields of typography and graphic design. The book includes a large number of works from well -known and lesser -known designers such as Emil Ruder, Helmut Schmid, Wolfgang Weingart, Hans-Rudolf Lutz, Jost Hochuli and many others.

New Monochrome Graphics
Creators’ love for black and white is a constant. Used to be the height of imaging and now a creative attitude, the austerely simple yet expressive black and white enthral designers for their stack contrast and evocative power in graphics and body of text that no other colours can attain.
Black & White is an all-new edition focusing on monochromatic graphic art. Be it a brand element, an aesthetic statement or a low-cost solution, the 130 showcased print art, brand design, art installations and fashion items in this book manifest the versatility and dramatic appearance of black and white blended with photography, special printing, and sometimes shadows and light. In words and selected creative projects, the hard core of this global movement today expounds on their conscious decision to fix on this limited palette to create, despite the exhilarating colour trends and the many quality colour printing options to hand.
Focusing on how graphic designers tackle the ordering of number-heavy information, this book shows how the best design minds around grapple with timetables, annual reports and other data-rich documents. It also includes a chapter outlining the basic typographic and detailing rules relating to numbers.
Featuring the work of such names as Stefan Sagmeister, Karin von Ompteda, Joost Grootens, Socket Studio, Stapelberg & Fritz, Form, Willi Kunz, Helmut Schmid, Build and Cartlidge Levene, Numbers in Graphic Design is bursting with inspirational examples of how to approach almost any design situation featuring numbers.
Numbers in Graphic Design is the sourcebook for any designer who wants to be able to work with numbers creatively and with confidence.

As part of Fabio Ongarato Design on-going commitment to working with new and emerging talent this project provided an opportunity to work within a creative discipline previously unexplored.
Through collaboration with the artists Fabio Ongarato Design developed a publication that showcases the artists work by weaving together a storyline celebrating the process by showcasing the artists tools and referencing the connection between the emotive title of the show and the creative process through a series of filmic title experiments.
Studio Craft & Technique is a one-stop handbook for undergraduate students of architecture. Based on the belief that technology is at the heart of design studies, this book encourages students to think of design and technology as an integrated whole.
We provide step-by-step techniques for skills that students use in their undergraduate studies, such as drawing, model making and surveying and explain the conventions of architectural representation. The book also explains the primary elements of construction and structure from first principles, using clear diagrams and drawings. Students will use this handbook on a daily basis in their design and technology studios through their first years of study.
Studio Craft & Technique has been recommended to first year students by The Bartlett School of Architecture.
