“Leiwand” is an Austrian slang word and is more commonly used in Vienna. It essentially means “extraordinary, unique or impressive”. So the message “DES LEIWANDE HEART SIE AUF” could be translated as: The unique and impressive will soon be gone. I did this no-budget project in 2017. I was looking for a way to use my typeface in a screenprint artwork. So I played around with some wording. Then I remembered a statement by a truly original owner of a well-known restaurant in Vienna. He said correspondingly after we had praised the great location and the service – hopefully expecting a schnapps: »Ihr wisst’s eh, des Leiwande heart si auf!« The wording was found! After a few printing sessions, I printed approx thirty pieces for friends.
