Eye monthly newsletter
26 June 2015
Eye 90 is out and subscribers all around the world – as far as Qatar and New Zealand – have now received (and Instagrammed) their copies. If you haven’t yet got your copy, available at good bookshops and online, take a look at Eye Before you Buy on Vimeo.
This type special issue includes articles such as ‘Writing the city’, about signwriter Pete Hardwicke (above); ‘Moscow by type’, a look at the Moscow Metro’s first typeface and pictogram system; and ‘Beyond Latin’, a type panel of designers chaired by Reading University’s Gerry Leonidas that discusses the global state of ‘non-Latin’ type. (See a detail of Pascal Zoghbi’s 29LT Zehn type anatomy, below. The Eye 90 cover features a detail of Zoghbi’s diagram showing Arabic and Latin characters in the typeface 29LT Kaff.) In the Uncoated section James Clough reviews The Eternal Letter and Abbott Miller reviews Earthquakes, Mudslides, Fires & Riots.
You can now read articles in full online from Eye 89 including ‘Chasing perfection’ about illustrator Tony Meeuwissen (below) and ‘Truth to photographic materials’ about the photographer Platon. Going deeper into the archive, you can also read Abbott Miller’s ‘What did you do in the design studio today, daddy?’ from Eye 22.
Some back issues are low in stock – go to the Eye shop to fill in the gaps in your collection before it’s too late!
Warmest regards from sunny Hoxton Square
John L. Walters, editor
