Curl up with a copy of Eye 74
The latest issue is a Berlin special (with added wood type, code and books)
If the weather outside is frightful, we suggest you prepare a hot drink and settle down by the fire with the latest issue of Eye
magazine, no. 74 vol. 19. It’s a Berlin special, with features about Onlab, cw&ra and Erik Spiekermann, plus a whole bunch of ‘Berlin snapshots’ (with more to come on the Eye blog) and an overview by Jan Middendorp.
Plus: the story of how Alan Kitching and Celia Stothard came to acquire the massive Wrington collection of theatrical wood type (above), Fontana Modern Masters and an interview with digital man-of-the-moment Karsten Schmidt (identity for Decode below) in Reputations.
There’s also a packed Review section, with Rick Poynor on Ed Ruscha, Steven Heller on Toons and Douglas Haddow on Studio Culture.
Eye is available from all good design bookshops and online at the Eye shop, where you can buy single issues. Take out a subscription, and get Eye delivered to your door, anywhere in the world.
