Published every 15 days during the French university year, October to May, 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. Issue 37 explores 'A polygraph: Georges Nelson.'
‘Georges Nelson (1908-1986), an American functionalist designer with polished creations, but with complex textual and visual manifestations is a special case within American Modernism, as is hinted at by the titles of his designs: A Problem of Design: How to Kill People, (1960), Requiem (1960) or Elegy in the Junk Yard (1961).’
