The MIT Press_Newsletter_December2018

Dear friends

For the final newsletter of 2018 we’re thrilled to tell you about a special offer: subscribe to Eye today and get a free DVD of Graphic Means.



When you subscribe to Eye, each new copy comes direct to your home or studio in a sturdy cardboard box. If you order today, starting your new subscription with Eye 97, you will receive a shrink-wrapped, all-region DVD of Briar Levit’s acclaimed full length design documentary Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production (which we previewed in Eye 95).

The latest issue is Eye 97, our magazine special issue part two, which has been getting a great response from readers and indie mag shops worldwide. Samir Husni published an interview on his Mr Magazine website, Jeremy Leslie wrote a piece about Eye 97 for his magCulture site and there is a podcast interview with me and Simon Esterson on the Stack site that you can hear right now.


You can catch a glimpse of Eye 97 via Eye Before You Buy on Vimeo, and see the contents listed here.

The second of two special issues on the theme of magazines, Eye 97 includes a Reputations interview with David Driver, articles about ZEITmagazin, California Sunday Magazine, Spare Rib and the 1960s Polish title Ty i Ja (below). In ‘For the love of food and print’ Steven Heller interviews Michele Outland, creative director of both indie food mag Gather and the mass-circulation Bon Appétit and Eye’s Simon Esterson chats to Serge Ricco, creative director of l’Obs in ‘Liberté, égalité, typography’.


So please take out a subscription now, and note that if you start with Eye 97 – with a free DVD of Graphic Means – your subscription will continue right up to our special celebration issue Eye 100. A subscription to Eye also makes a great gift, especially while the DVD offer is current.

It’s easy to order any single copy of Eye via the Eye shop (as long as the issues are still in stock), but the best way to build your Eye collection is to subscribe, so we really hope that our special Graphic Means offer will tempt the non-subscribers among you to pick up the phone today (01371 851885), or go online using this link and subscribe to Eye.

With warmest wishes for the new year

John Walters, editor

PS Dates for your diary: Our quarterly Type Tuesday events in 2019 will be held at St Bride Library in London on 5 March, 4 June, 3 September and 26 November.
