Come to the Eye 101 launch
Please join Anette Lenz, Mario Eskenazi, Jim Sutherland & Elizabeth Resnick next Tuesday 8 June to celebrate Eye’s latest issue
The next Type Tuesday is a virtual launch party, designed to celebrate the publication of the latest edition of Eye, writes editor John Walters.
And we are thrilled to have four guests – Anette Lenz (France), Mario Eskenazi (Spain), Jim Sutherland (UK) and Elizabeth Resnick (USA) – whose work is featured in Eye 101. The tickets for this Zoom event – which you can buy via Eventbrite – cost a mere £5 (£3 for concessions) and the proceeds support the St Bride Foundation.

Professor Elizabeth Resnick will show Jacqueline Casey’s early work for Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Office of Publications (where she learned graphic design from Muriel Cooper by doing summer session catalogue covers) and how this work was directly inspired by Thérèse Moll's visit to MIT in 1959. See Elizabeth’s articles ‘Science and design’ in Eye 101 and ‘The enigma of Thérèse Moll’ in Eye 98.
