Eye newsletter
20 November 2019

Dear friends,

If you’re in London on 26 November and you would like to join us for the next Type Tuesday, I strongly advise you to book as there are just a handful of tickets left. 

Type Tuesday: From Apfel to normcore’ will include speakers Kirsty Carter and Emma Thomas (Apfel), designer Melanie Mues and writer Elizabeth Glickfeld.

The event centres around articles from Eye 99; you can read extracts online – ‘Everyday people’, ‘Art and ambiguity’ and ‘Normcore inferno’ – and buy the issue on the night from the Eye shop.


Gordon Crocker, Couple in an open top car, ca. 1934.

Gordon Crocker, Couple in an open top car, ca. 1934, featured in Autofocus: The Car in Photography (2019) by Marta Weiss, published by Thames & Hudson in association with the V&A.

Rick Poynor’s latest Photo Critique is ‘Four-wheeled dreams’, on the subject of the car in photography. Rick’s Eye 52 article ‘Crash covers’, about book jackets for J. G. Ballard’s novel Crash, is also a timely read.



The ‘Soy Yo’ campaign on the exterior of Centro Cultural Recoleta in Buenos Aires, designed by Guille Vizzari of Yani&Guille.

Read ‘(Typographic) Noted #95’ and our report from MagCulture Live, which took place on 7 November at Conway Hall, on the Eye blog. 

Several readers and Twitter followers reminded us to repost this little piece about the Cooper Black typeface, written by Armin Vit and first published in Eye 48.

You can also read ‘Telling and selling’, Steven Heller’s article about the typeface, in Eye no. 7 vol. 2.Titles-back issues


Eye no. 7 is sadly no longer available, but there are still several issues – including the above-mentioned numbers 48, 52 and 53 (the brand madness special) – for which we have a few copies on sale in the Eye shop

Thanks for reading – I hope we’ll see some of you at Type Tuesday. The next newsletter will be on 4 December, when I can reveal a little more about the forthcoming Eye 100 celebrations. UK residents can pre-order Eye 100 using this link,

Warmest regards

John Walters, editor
