Eye newsletter
22 March 2017

Dear friends

We hope all of our subscribers are enjoying their copies of Eye and have been introduced to or reacquainted with the work of designers and illustrators such as Harry Pearce, Fuel, Lora Lamm, Edward Ardizzone and early 70s supergroup Bentley / Farrell / Burnett. You can now read Rick Poynor’s ‘Modernist cottage industry’ about publisher Ruth Artmonsky in full.


Since publishing Eye 93 at the end of last month, we have turned our attention to updating articles from the archive of our 27-year history. Read ‘Getting better all the time’ in Eye 69, about the late Alan Aldridge and ‘The rules of the game’ in Eye 58 about the work of illustrator George Hardie whose current exhibition at the University of Brighton Gallery continues until 17 April.

You can also now read articles in full published more recently including ‘Colouring in the city’ in Eye 91 and David Crowley’s ‘I am a poster’ in Eye 92.

On the Eye blog, read Clare Walters’ ‘Games people play’, a review of the Museum of Childhood’s current exhibition ‘Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered’, which continues until 23 April 2017. Also, see ‘Noted #80’ which looks at Le Petit Néant no. 3, Pencil & Help’s activity book for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Tom Gauld’s new book Mooncop, and much more.

Warmest regards from De Beauvoir Town

John L. Walters, editor
