Tear-off type walls in Berlin

20 May 2013

The Bauhaus Archive presents a tour of German-language typographic history with ‘On-Type: Texts on Typography’.

What type taught me about music

28 January 2013

Rick Finlay recalls his time at Reading, a university education that was not about vocation, but ‘raw knowledge and research, and their applicability to whatever life throws at you’
As an undergraduate on the Typography course at Reading University around 1980 I found enough fellow tunesmiths to put together a five-piece band made up only of students on the course, writes Rick Finlay. We were proud of our rock-pop constructions, but also fastidious about the packaging of our demo cassette.

The magazine that wasn’t

10 October 2012

Aspen, the cultural journal that challenged the limits of its form, goes on display at Whitechapel Gallery in London
To read an edition of Aspen magazine is to flip through a booklet, unfurl a concertina, shuffle some postcards or to unfold a poster, writes Elizabeth Glickfeld. Copies of the cult 1960s artists’ magazine are now so prized that the tactile experience of reading any one edition is necessarily denied the viewer of the exhibition ‘Aspen Magazine: 1965–1971’ (in the Pat Matthews Gallery at the Whitechapel Gallery in London).

East Germany’s biggest design archive is about to be put under wraps, inaccessible to scholars and the general public, writes Jessica Jenkins
