The type special issue of Eye includes the must-read, three-part ‘Type Now’ (with articles by Jan Middendorp, Sarah Snaith and Peter Biľak), a profile of Hansje van Halem and Mark Thomson’s detailed tribute to the late Bram de Does. Elizabeth Resnick writes about the influential Swiss designer Thérèse Moll (1934-61).

In ‘Last man casting’, Ferdinand Ulrich visits one of the foundries to cast metal type (in Darmstadt), and a piece about Commercial Classics is illustrated by photos of the punches, matrices, specimens and smoke proofs in St Bride Library that inspired Paul Barnes’s extensive revival of nineteenth-century typefaces.

In the Front Matter section you can read ‘The designer as podcaster’ by Katie Evans and Gabriela Matuszyk, Sarah Snaith on design education in Argentina, a short feature about the Design Canada documentary and Rick Poynor’s latest Photo Critique, about Polish designer Wojciech Zamecznik, which you can read right now on the Eye website. The extensive Uncoated section includes Peter Biľak’s review of Gerard Unger’s Theory of Type Design, Paul Kahn on W. E. B. Du Bois’s Data Portraits, and John L. Walters’s review, which you can read in full, of Art Kane Harlem 1958.
