Dear friends

Our next Type Tuesday event on 1 September at St Bride Library in London, entitled ‘Web 1.0: the baby and the bathwater’, will feature digital pioneers Tom Roope, founding member of Antirom, Laura Jordan Bambach of Deepend and Lateral, and Alexandra Jugovic and Florian Schmitt of Hi-ReS! The event will also include a panel discussion chaired by digital archeologist Jim Boulton with commentator and consultant Nico Macdonald and Dr Richard Barbrook, author of Imaginary Futures: From Thinking Machines to the Global Village. Boulton, who has masterminded the event, has written a short article ‘Type Tuesday: Web 1.0’ for the Eye blog. (Requiem for a Dream site by Hi-ReS! 2000, below.)

Hi-ReS! 2000

The Reputations interview with international design practice Mucho in Eye 89 is now available to read in full on the Eye website. Recent Eye blog posts include ‘The illusion of artivism’ by Alice Butler and ‘The freedom principle’, about street artist Thierry Noir (below).


You will also enjoy Paul Barnes’ Eye 90 tribute ‘James Mosley: A life in objects’, about the former St Bride librarian, now online in full. (Wooden punches from the foundry of Louis John Pouchée, 1782-1845. Mosley acquired them from Oxford University Press for the St Bride Library in the early 1970s, below).

Speaking of St Bride, you can get your tickets for Type Tuesday here. And don’t forget to update your address book: we are now in our new studio space on the top floor of 100 De Beauvoir Road, London N1 4EN.


Some back issues are low in stock such as Eye 26 and Eye 73 – go to the Eye shop to fill in the gaps in your collection before it’s too late!

Warmest regards from Haggerston

John L. Walters, editor

PS Save the date: the final Type Tuesday of 2015 will be on 1 December at St Bride Library.
