The third issue of P98a PAPER is called »The Nepotism Issue«. In an inappropriate abuse of power, we have paired father-and-son team Erik and Dylan Spiekermann throughout this issue’s sixty pages. 

While the legendary type designer and art historian ranges over topics from well-dressed Italian farmers, the endurance of the Bauhaus, espresso, and the corners of 1960s Braun devices, his London-based, polymath son, Dylan, writes, well, from the future. The singer-songwriter and satirist skips over the details of the immanent worldwide drone-war that destroys everything on earth and gets right down to how humanity recovers its lost practices: This is Art. This is Sport. This is Sex. This is very funny.
