We have received the first copies of Typography papers 7 in the office. It looks fine. Four-colour printing is used, for only the second time in Typography papers, for some pictures in Sue Walker’s article on letterforms for young readers in early twentieth-century English publications, and for a remarkable diagram made by Brian Coe, as part of the work of the Graphic Information Research Unit at the Royal College of Art, remembered in an article by Linda Reynolds, its chief researcher. Silver ink is used as a third colour on the cover, to reproduce the letter-stencil that is the subject of Eric Kindel’s article. The issue leads with a path-breaking article on ‘The young Garamont’ by Hendrik Vervliet, and includes also spirited pieces by Giovanni Lussu and the late Justin Howes. Copies of Typography papers 7 should reach our London warehouse in early August, and can then be bought (as usual) through good bookshops and direct from Central Books. It will be released in North America in the early autumn, when copies arrive at our distributor’s warehouse there.
