Out now: Eye #82

The new Eye is out, and as ever is full of magazine-related goodness.

 

A look at the production process of satirical fortnightly Private Eye reveals they still lay out their pages by hand, a method barely changed since the magaizne launched fifty years ago

Paul Barnes and Christian Schwartz, the pair behind Commercial Type and suppliers of bespoke typefaces to many maagiznes and newspapers including The Guardian, are interviewed. The issue is worth this piece alone.

Last but not least fellow magaholic Bob Newman takes a look at the cover designs of America’s ‘altweeklies’ – low-budget local magazines. UPDATE: you can now read Bob’s piece here. Alas, you can’t see the pix tho.

Buy Eye here.
