Dear friends

We are in the final stages of production for Eye 94, a type special issue with features about Nadine Chahine, Muir McNeil, Novo Typo and more, plus reviews, Eye Education & Rick Poynor’s must-read Photo Critique.

Meanwhile, we’d love to see you at St Bride on 6 June for Type Tuesday: Signs of Italy.


A short preview for James Clough’s talk showing an array of outdoor lettering from up and down the boot of Italy.

The second of our quarterly Type Tuesday events in 2017 will be held at St Bride Library in London next Tuesday, 6 June. Tickets are available here for £8 / £10 / £12.50.

Thanks to the support of Fedrigoni, we are presenting a very special event which features British designer, historian and Eye contributor James Clough. James will be joining us from Milan, where he has lived and worked for more than 40 years, and the talk, based on his researches into Italian street signs and public lettering, will cover everything from cinema signs to manhole covers … to the nizioleti of Venice.

Copies of James’s book Signs of Italy (see review in Eye 91) will be available to buy at the Eye stall where you can also purchase subscriptions, the current issue (no. 93) and bargain back issues for just £10.



Cover for Pulp 06 featuring Italian-born designer Giulia Garbin – Pulp is the quarterly journal of people and paper created by the team at Eye for Fedrigoni.

We are pleased to welcome special guest Giulia Garbin to join James Clough on the Type Tuesday panel. Giulia recently won a coveted Fedrigoni Top Award for her book Tipi di Torino and is working on the next in the series, Tipi di Bologna, which tells the story – using type and linocut illustrations – of printers in Bologna. James and Giulia will discuss Italian design culture in the second half of the evening event.

We hope to see you at Type Tuesday to talk type and meet like-minded designers over a cool glass of something or other.

Warmest regards from De Beauvoir Town

John Walters, editor
