Published every 15 days during the French university year, September to June, Revue Faire is a vital addition to the small selection of journals addressing graphic design from a critical standpoint. Every issue has a different subject and visual theme.
This issue is a more stripped back affair than earlier ones, a largely monochromatic edition dedicated to My Calling (Card) #1 #2 #3 — a series of prints and performances by the American artist Adrian Piper, who designed a number of ingeniously captioned calling cards to 'confront her counterparts with their sexist and racist actions within different relational and social contexts: a dinner, a party, a bar…'
On the Journal
At work with founders Sacha and François: ‘We started Revue Faire as we finished being weekly lecturer in graphic design schools. But the publishing rhythm is based on the school schedule—an issue every 15 days, from September to June. The main purpose is to deliver every 15 days a kind of small course about one specific topic. In that way, one season can become a kind of visual culture course in 15 lessons.’
