Special colour for calligraffiti on front of Eye 75, our typography special
The cover of Eye 75, out very soon, uses a special colour, a fluorescent Pantone 804.
Here are some pictures that show the magazine covers in production last Friday, down at Beacon Press. You can almost smell the ink. Photographs: Jay Prynne.

Above and below: the gloopy ink ducts, brimming with Glo-brite 804.

And here’s a glimpse of the inside covers coming off the press (below). Can you see what it is yet?
See ‘Cheap jack flash’, Eric Kindel’s article about fluorescent inks in Eye 60.
