In December 2010, designer Dominique Falla made a foolish and public declaration that she would devote herself for a whole year to one typeface and one typeface only—Helvetica. It would appear that the year went remarkably well for Dominique, and she felt it was only appropriate to say ‘goodbye’ to Helvetica properly.

This book documents the typographic installation Goodbye Helvetica, which took place in early 2012, in the Surfer’s Paradise Transit Centre on Australia’s Gold Coast.

In the course of four years, the ARGUS has published dozens of feature stories online. In producing this first print collection, editors worked tirelessly to find the best of these online stories and translate them for the old, “hot,” medium—to make the book an extension of the eye. It’s meant as a dialectic reflection on these vibrant visual stories from our new century.

The History of Surgery

The History of Surgery

Available Now

Why do we trust surgeons? After all, allowing strangers to work on our unconscious bodies with knives requires an enormous leap of faith. How have we come to believe that surgeons will act in the best interests of our health, rather than in the best interests of their wallets?

This unconventional history of surgery charts the early twentieth century transformation of public attitudes from ‘buyer beware’ to ‘doctor knows best,’ as surgeons invented traditions appropriate for gentlemanly, and occasionally ladylike, but above all trustworthy, experts.

Marvel at the adventures of author Dominique Falla as she “tagged” Prague on behalf of random strangers who made their “tague” requests via her website. This book is a collection of the stories and images that she amassed over those three weeks in Prague. It tells an interesting story of a city, its monuments, its people, and Dominique’s interaction with them on behalf of random strangers from around the world. Their stories also appear in this book, and are just as varied and interesting as their tague requests.

In November 1989 the people of Prague staged a peaceful revolt against the Communist regime which had ruled Czechoslovakia since 1948. Twenty years later, a group of Australian photographers, artists and designers set out to broaden their horizons by joining countless international tourists and locals pouring through the twisting, interconnected cobbled streets of Prague. Comfortable Shoes Only is a catalogue of their investigations into the revolution, the city and the people of Prague.

This book is a series of typographic explorations by a group of designers, artists, photographers and typographers from the Northern Rivers area of NSW.

These pieces were inspired by Austrian designer Stefan Sagmeister’s series of “Things I have Learned In My Life So Far”.

Each artist wrote a journal for several weeks and then made visual treatments of the three words or phrases that had the most meaning for them. We hope you enjoy the results.
