We are putting the finishing touches to Eye 93 – keep an eye on social media for images of the issue rolling off the Pureprint presses in Uckfield. You can expect to enjoy pieces by new contributors such as design ethics researcher Peter Buwert, Chiara Medioli, Matthew Robertson, graphic artist Ian Wright and art editor Holly Catford, alongside articles from long-standing contributors such as Rick Poynor, Steven Heller and Alice Twemlow.
Several articles from Eye 92 are now published in full on the Eye website. See Peter Bain’s ‘A manual of hand-made Modernism’ about Swiss designer Walter Käch’s 1949 loose-leaf Schriften Lettering Écritures and Meg Carter’s ‘Tune out, dive deep, read on’ about Riposte, a UK-produced biannual women’s magazine.
To complement the Reputations interview, the Eye team made a video (above) to demonstrate the sheer scale of Mongrel Rapture, designed by Australian graphic designer Stuart Geddes and ARM Architecture.
Over the holidays, the Eye blog will continue to provide you with interesting content. Recent blogs include John O’Reilly’s ‘String theory’ about book Experience: Culture, Cognition, and the Common Sense and Mariam Dembele’s review of ‘Malick Sidibé: The Eye of Modern Mali’ on at London’s Somerset House until 15 January.
We have also revamped our Eye magazine online shop where you can buy subscriptions, student and gift subscriptions and back issues from our 27-year history as well as Eye’s Classic Collections for the bargain price of £45.
Another date for your diary – on Wed 22 February 2017 we’ll be hosting an evening called ‘Draw the truth’ with reportage illustrators Olivier Kugler (featured in the forthcoming Eye 93) and Lucinda Rogers (see Eye 91).
The event is in collaboration with the AOI (Association of Illustrators) and UAL Chelsea, where it takes place at the Banqueting Hall, Chelsea College, London, from 7-9pm.
‘Drawing the truth’ will have resonance for everyone involved in illustration, journalism, graphic design, art direction, advertising and education. Book tickets here.
The next Type Tuesday will follow on 7 March 2017 at St Bride Library.
Warmest regards from De Beauvoir Town
