Eye monthly newsletter
If you are an Eye subscriber, the latest issue, Eye 86, should be with you by now. And if you’re not, now is a good time to take out a subscription to Eye. You can start with Eye 87, the forthcoming food and drink design special, or with 86, which includes articles about stencil typefaces, Letraset, fairground artist Fred Fowle, Alan Bartram, steampunk and a Reputations interview with Tony Brook of Spin.
You can get an idea of the look and feel of the issue in this ‘Eye before you buy’ video on Vimeo.
We’ve also been busy with events, including freshers’ fairs at Central Saint Martins and Kingston University.
A talk by Eye art director Simon Esterson was one of the highlights of the recent ‘Modern Magazine’ conference at CSM (below), and I had the pleasure of chairing an Eye ‘Archive Night’ in Amsterdam at the start of this year’s ATypI conference. Simon and I will be at the Integrated2013 conference in Antwerp later this week.
For regularly updated details of graphic design and visual culture events, please bookmark the Eye Events page, in which we do our best to track exhibitions, seminars and conferences around the world, including the new ‘Pop Art Design’ show at the Barbican Centre, and ‘Designing Modern Women’ at MoMA in New York.
The next Type Tuesday at St Bride Library will be another ‘Archive Night’ – a collaboration with the department of Typography and Graphic Communication at Reading University. Please save the date in your calendar: 7pm on Tuesday 10 December 2013.
We are now hard at work on Eye 87, the food and drink design issue, which will include articles about restaurant identity, alternative food magazines, wine labels and packaging, with added sex, drugs, ethanol, flavouring, E555, E171, E172 and teacakes, and exciting articles from several writers entirely new to Eye magazine. Delicious.
Warmest regards from London
John Walters, editor
