First of all, a big thank you to everyone who came to Type Tuesday in March. Our event featuring Mark Porter – ‘The magazine now arriving on platform 15’ – sold out and provoked lots of good responses. Our thanks to Mark, Alex Breuer (Guardian) and Mark Wilson (Wilson Fletcher) for their contributions, and to everyone who came along to think and talk about the future of editorial design.
The next Type Tuesday, 4 June 2013 at London’s St Bride Library, will be a chance to hear type designer Henrik Kubel speak about ‘New work, new fonts, New Transport’. You can buy tickets from Eventbrite right now.
Eye readers will know of Henrik and his work with Margaret Calvert (‘Britain’s signature’, Eye 71), his own practice A2/SW/HK (see ‘A2’s type design’ in Eye 67) and his typeface Typewriter, which we used in Eye 79.
And you may have read Henrik’s Eye 72 review of Subway Art: 25th Anniversary Edition, in which he says that, ‘Looking at “burners” on New York subway trains was the biggest inspiration an up-and-coming, twelve-year-old graffiti artist could ever wish for.’
The long-promised Eye 85 will be on press any day soon – with articles about Chris Dixon, children’s books, Lust and Bruno Munari – and we’ll be reporting on the progress of the issue as it goes to repro and on press under the supervision of art director Simon Esterson.
On the Eye blog you can now read a new series of online-only reviews. Recent items include ‘Banham’s Melbourne letters’, Robert Hanks’ review of Characters by Stephen Banham, Andrew Missingham’s ‘Good works … creak’, a review of Goodvertising and Steven Heller’s review of ‘Kama’ (about sex and design) in Milan. See this full list on the website.
Here’s looking at you
