Eye monthly newsletter
Happy new year, and if you are a subscriber, thanks for your patience in waiting for the arrival of Eye 87, our food and drink design special, which will be on press any day now.
This issue will include a Reputations interview about Louise Fili; an article about North’s identity design for restaurants, hotels and clubs; an overview of design for wine and beer labels; and interviews with three leading food photographers, with mouthwatering examples of their work.
We are also going to take a look at the burgeoning area of international alternative food magazines, from Put a Egg on it to Fool, and there will be a critical view of the visual culture of food packaging. As always, we’ll be introducing several great writers who are new to Eye.
Our previous issue, Eye 86, is still on sale in good design bookshops and magazine stores, but if you have trouble locating it in your region we suggest you buy it online or (better still) take out a subscription to Eye.
You can start with Eye 87, or with 86. You can get an idea of the look and feel of the magazine in this ‘Eye before you buy’ video on Vimeo (below).
The subject matter of Eye 86 includes: steampunk; stencils; fairground lettering; Alan Bartram; and an in-depth interview with Tony Brook of Spin, conducted over several days here in Hoxton and at Spin’s studio in Kennington. You can now read some of the articles – such as ‘Painted thrills and spills’ and ‘Rub-down revolution’ – in full on the Eye website.
For regularly updated details of graphic design and visual culture events, please bookmark the Eye Events page, which includes exhibitions, seminars and conferences around the world, including ‘Elegantissima’ at the Memorial Gallery in New York and ‘Kazimir Malevich and the Russian Avant-Garde’ at the Stedelijk museum in Amsterdam.
We’ve also been putting a bit of love and care into updating older articles in the Eye archive – features such as Eye 11’s Archive, about the Dictionary of Visual Language (above); the Lawrence Weiner profile in Eye 29; and Andrew Howard’s influential ‘There is such a thing as society*’.
Recent pieces on the Eye blog include Mark Porter’s review of Pretty Pictures and ‘With a gun’, Colin Davies’s review of the Cuban OSPAAAL posters at Kemistry. Fraser Muggeridge has written a fine tribute to the great British graphic designer Ken Briggs, who died just after Christmas.
And we really hope you enjoy Eye 87, the food & drink special now on its way to repro. Bon appetit!
Warmest regards from London
John Walters, editor
