Life in 5 Seconds

Publisher Quercus Books teamed up with the clever Italian design duo Matteo Civaschi and Gianmarco Milesi of H-57 to publish a book for people with short attention spans. Each true story is told in a series of witty pictograms, providing a snapshot on our world. With more than 200 stories, Life in Five Seconds cuts to the chase in order to keep you informed of world events, cultural icons, and famous people. But wait, there is more! You can download the free Quercus Eye app for AndroidiPhone or tablet, and point it at some of the designated pages, and the story will spring to life faster than you can turn the page.

Letterpress for iPad Coming Soon

LetterMpress™ will be a virtual letterpress environment—released first on the iPad—that will allow anyone to create authentic-looking letterpress designs and prints.

The design process is the same as the letterpress process—you place and arrange type and cuts on a press bed, lock the type, ink the type, and print. You will be able to create unlimited designs, with multiple colors, using authentic vintage wood type and art cuts. And you can print your design directly from LetterMpress or save it as an image for import it into other applications.
