Eye 92 is out, and should now be with subscribers and bookstores worldwide. The issue includes articles about Boris Bućan, Walter Käch, progress bars, the magCulture shop and much more.
Below: The cover shows a detail of a photo of sanitation workers marching down Main Street in Memphis, March 1968. See ‘I am a poster’ in Eye 92, by David Crowley, curator of ‘The Poster Remediated’, Warsaw International Poster Biennale 2016. Plus type detail from Walter Käch’s book Schriften Lettering Écritures.
The Uncoated section includes Rose Epple’s review of ‘Masse und Klasse: Graphic Design in the GDR’ at Werkbundarchiv – Museum der Dinge in Berlin and Jim Northover’s report from the current Sandberg exhibition at De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill on Sea, on until 4 September.

We’ve been working hard on the Eye archive and have published several new articles and images from Eye 70 including David Crow’s ‘Magic box: craft and the computer’ and Richard Hollis’s ‘Play and playbill’.
At our next Type Tuesday event on 13 September at St Bride Library in London, Eye founder Rick Poynor will give a lecture about Sandberg’s life and work. You can purchase tickets here.
As always, we will be selling the current issue alongside bargain back issues of Eye.
You can also buy subscriptions and single issues by going direct to the Eye shop.

PS Save the dates: The following Type Tuesday will be on 22 November. In December we’ll be presenting a special two-evening event with French designers at the new Design Museum. More details soon.
