codex: The Journal of Letterforms, Fall 2012

Codex2_Cover_final Each year I subscribe to one nice art magazine. This is mine for this year. I missed the first issue but could get it as a download to my iPad for only $8.

Issue #2 sets the bar even higher: More pages (180), more great content, and a complete redesign. Read about the iconic Pirelli Publicity of the 50s & 60s by such luminaries as Massimo Vignelli, Bob Noorda, and Alan Fletcher; discover the work of Czech type designer, Oldřich Menhart, in addition to book reviews and previews, the challenges of multi-lingual type design by creator of Skolar, David Březina; graphic design in the mechanical age — or how it was done before the advent of the PC, and much more.

This is a limited run and they go fast so I you want a subscription act now. John Boardley the founder of Codex also writes an interesting popular type blog

Can't wait for an afternoon when I can just sit with my new magazine and a cup of tea.
