Eye monthly newsletter
15 May 2015
We’re just about to go to press with Eye 90. This big Type Special is full of substantial features, including a Reputations interview with Fred Smeijers, a non-Latin type panel and a piece about the great James Mosley, former librarian of St Bride in London.
Talking of St Bride Library, our next Type Tuesday, a ‘Stencil spectacular’, will take place there on 2 June. Eric Kindel and Fred Smeijers will present an unmissable guide to the past, present and future of stencil type followed by a panel discussion with me, the speakers and special guests. (See Eric’s ‘A tradition with breaks’, about stencil typefaces, in Eye 86).
We’ve been busy updating the website with articles such as Val Williams’ review of Magnum Contact Sheets ‘One image, many photos’ and Rick Poynor’s review of work by avant-garde photographer Joan Fontcuberta ‘Trust me, I’m a photographer’ in Eye 89. Also from Eye 89 is Sarah Snaith’s feature ‘Dance on the spot’ about Abbott Miller’s apps for the 2wice Arts Foundation. (Below: Abbott Miller’s second dance app Fifth Wall, 2012, choreographed and performed by Jonah Bokaer.)
Warmest regards from Hoxton Square
John L. Walters, editor
PS Save the date: the next Type Tuesdays will be on 1 September and 1 December
