    The Dutch Poezenkrant (“Cat newspaper”) is an irregularly appearing periodical since 1974, only sideways writing about cats. It has no editorial staff but is compiled, written, designed, illustrated and published by ‘Director’ P. Schreuders (Piet Schreuders, also known for Furore magazine).

    “You never know when it will come out or what it looks like” is a common complaint; after all, the shape and size of the ‘newspaper’ (book? glossy? flyer? tabloid?) are different every time. Still, De Poezenkrant has a large crowd of admirers and a healthy base of loyal subscribers through thick and thin.

    Issue 63 features an early use of the digitised version of Alarm for titling. Many Poezenkrant editions seem to refer to other existing publications by design and #63 is no exception, obviously nodding to The Guardian and their recent redesign. Most text is set in Guardian Egyptian Headline and Guardian Egyptian Text. The sans used for information on the cover is yet unidentified. [edit: It’s Retina, see comments.]

    1. I found a better image of it here:
      caroliennaaktgeborenbos.nl/…

      Retina looks very close, though the number sign (#) looks different.

    2. Thank you, Akira! I have asked the designer. Piet Schreuders confirms that it is Retina Bold, which has been in use for De Poezenkrant since issue #61.
