Dear friends

Last week we sent the final pages of Eye 92 off to our printers Pureprint, so its pages may be rolling off their mighty Heidelberg XL106 as you read these words.

We’re very proud of the new issue, which includes articles by David Crowley, Tom Harrad and Peter Bain and a Reputations interview with Melbourne designer Stuart Geddes written by Dirty Furniture co-founder Elizabeth Glickfeld.

Below: Glimpse of an Eye 92 proof from our Instagram feed.


There are also articles about Tom Phillips, Riposte magazine and the education of illustrators, plus a review of the current Sandberg exhibition at De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill on Sea.

Other reviews cover books about W. A. Dwiggins, Experimental Jetset and Polish design.

Our next Type Tuesday event at St Bride Library in London will be a lecture about Sandberg’s life and work by Rick Poynor, so please save the date: 13 September 2016. The following Type Tuesday will be on 29 November. And in December we’ll be presenting a special two-evening event with French designers at the new Design Museum.

Copies of Eye 92 will be reaching subscribers and bookstores worldwide early next month. You can buy subscriptions and single issue by going direct to the Eye shop.

Several reviews and features from Eye 91 are now available to read online, including Steven Heller’s review of the Colors book, London Letters and Sarah Snaith’s article about Robert Brownjohn’s street photography.

More about Eye 92 and Type Tuesday in next month’s Eye newsletter.

Warmest regards
