De Optimist is an Amsterdam based platform for young poets and writers, organising events and performances and publishing magazines and other types of publications. For this riso-printed poetry zine they invited 10 poets to write a poem, or short text on the topic of humour. The design of the magazine reflects the theme as it plays with the unusual positioning of the typography, forcing the reader to bend and twist to be able to read the texts.
