A big thank you to everyone who came to the last Type Tuesday – we had a great time at St Bride listening to James Clough and Giulia Garbin as well as linocut and letterpress printing with Simon Esterson, Phil Baines, Ben Weiner and other friends old and new.
There is a new Photo Critique on the Eye website – ‘The joy and sadness of dust’ by Rick Poynor.
It’s about the current Whitechapel Gallery exhibition curated by David Campany, which Rick describes as a ‘singular and fascinating exhibition that is best approached as a kind of visual essay.’
The Photo Critique section on the website has now evolved into a monthly (see Rick’s ‘Inner space man’ article for May and others for April and March). Next month’s Photo Critique will also be published in print in the somewhat delayed type special issue, Eye 94, which will feature articles about Nadine Chahine, MuirMcNeil, Kabel, Novo Typo and Morgan’s Pointing Finger.
On the same subject, two recent Eye blogs focus on type matters: a typographic Noted, including How to Create Typefaces, and Books received which includes Type Tells Tales by Steven Heller and Gail Anderson.
Eye 94 will be on press next month and on its way to subscribers by the time you receive the next newsletter. If you would like to subscribe to Eye, go here.
