After a hectic week of the AGI Open conference it was a pleasure to sit down and tweet images of magazine typography for the Design Museum yesterday. Here are a few of my posts, along with a selection of others contributed over the afternoon. Thanks to Michael at the Museum for inviting me, and to everyone who took part.
