Dear friends

Eye 94 has reached our loyal subscribers and will soon be in all good bookshops and indie mag stores worldwide, if it isn’t already.


Five of the 8000 unique covers for Eye 94 designed by MuirMcNeil.

This type special issue includes articles about type designer Nadine Chahine; the 1983 ATypI seminar at Stanford University that became a milestone in the long transition from craft to code; Kabel, Rudolf Koch’s eccentric, geometric 1920s typeface that has been revived as a 21st century type family; and much more.

You can read extracts from the issue online here and subscribe here.


A short preview of Adrian Harrison’s forthcoming film of the Eye 94 variable data cover being printed and bound at Pureprint.

Director and cinematographer Adrian Harrison went behind the scenes with the Eye team at Pureprint to capture the dynamic printing and binding process for Eye 94. This short preview of the film marks our first ever digitally printed, variable data cover, designed by MuirMcNeil to complement our feature ‘Pleasure in the process’. Each of the 8000 copies of the issue are numbered and unique (share your number on any of our social media pages).



Cover art for Sly and Robbie – Sound of Taxi, illustrated by Wilfred Limonious. See Ian Wright’s review ‘Big up! about In Fine Style: The Dancehall Art of Wilfred Limonious in Eye 93.

All of the reviews from Eye 93’s Uncoated section are now published in full. See Stephen Coates’ ‘A single-minded art director’, Monika Parrinder’s ‘Activism follows anger’ and Matthew Robertson’s ‘Eventure playground’, among many others.



Spread from Eye 94 showing the typographic opener set in Henrik Kubel’s Sunday Clarendon for ‘Mightier than the Pen: Systems of Type’.

Our next Type Tuesday event, ‘Systems of Type’, will be held at St Bride Library on 5 September 2017. We hope you will join us once again to hear from speakers Paul McNeil, Hamish Muir (MuirMcNeil) plus Henrik Kubel (A2-Type) who designed the guest typefaces for Eye 94: English 1766 and Sunday Clarendon.

Warmest regards from De Beauvoir Town

John Walters, editor
