Eye ♥ freebies
A couple of extra treats for UK subscribers, free with Eye 79
Eye’s UK subscribers may have noticed a couple of extras accompanying their copy of the latest issue. First up is Size, Format, Stock , produced by Fenner Paper and Studio8 Design.
It’s a handy guide to the physical side of print production, including: paper sizes, pagination, envelopes, folding, bindings, types of stock and environmental impacts. In case you were wondering, the guide is 210x148mm, saddle stitched, and printed on Colorset 100% Recycled 120gsm and Offenbach Bible 60gsm.
There is also a Oyster-decorated travelcard wallet by Bridgeman Art Library, inspired by London’s Oyster card but usable on transport networks around the world.
Eye is the world’s most beautiful and collectable graphic design journal, published quarterly for professional designers, students and anyone interested in critical, informed writing about graphic design and visual culture. It’s available from all good design bookshops and online at the Eye shop, where you can buy subscriptions, back issues and single copies of the latest issue. The latest issue is Eye 79, a type special.
