Eye monthly newsletter
1 April 2015

Dear friends

We’ve been updating the online content from back issues of Eye with the help of our new editorial intern Sean Eckhardt, who also recently reviewed the Leon Golub exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery; see ‘Cut canvas’ on the Eye blog.

'Bite Your Tongue' larger

(Above: Leon Golub, Bite Your Tongue, 2001.)

Updated articles include Abbott Miller’s ‘Pictures for rent’ in Eye 14, Richard Hollis’s review ‘The designer as programmer’ in Eye 43 and Ken Garland’s memoir ‘Herbert Spencer: 1924-2002’ in Eye 44. (The image below, St Pancras Street, is from Without Words which was given to colleagues and friends of Herbert Spencer at his 75th birthday party at the V&A.) Eye 14 can now be read online in full including ‘Reputations: Dan Friedman’, ‘Underground matriarchy’ and Rick Poynor’s profile of Andrzej Klimowski ‘Theatre of dreams’.


On 28 April Eye is hosting ‘Sound image process’, a Secret 7" event at London’s Somerset House: I’ll be talking to Simon Taylor and Dylan Kendle of Tomato (see ‘Information sculpture’ in Eye 13).

In case you missed it, Anna Kealey’s coverage of the Dublin conference Offset 2015 is available on the Eye blog: ‘Ready, Offset, go!’, ‘Offset 2015: day one’, ‘Offset 2015: day two’ and ‘Offset 2015: day three’. (See Swedish advertising agency Snask’s 3D typographic poster for the Malmö festival, below.)


Eye 90 will be on press soon. Don’t forget that you can subscribe to Eye by picking up the phone (084 5456 7757), but if you prefer to shop in silence, there’s email or the Eye Shop, where you can also order back issues. If you need to plug a few gaps in your Eye magazine collections, we recommend you do it sooner rather later – our warehouse stocks are dwindling fast.

Warmest regards from Hoxton Square

John L. Walters, editor

PS Save the date: the next Type Tuesdays will be on 2 June, 1 September and 1 December 2015
