The Recorder Issue 3
The original Monotype magazine, redesigned and re-imagined. Featuring 100+ pages on typography and graphic design, exploring type’s role in a wider cultural context.
In Issue 3 Jennifer Kennard explores how the history of banknotes is also the history of graphic design and printing, and journalist Laura Snoad examines typefaces with a political agenda. Amy Papaelias looks at how a new generation of women is carrying on the legacy of Beatrice Warde, while Angela Riechers examines the typographic impact of neon lettering, and stone carver John Neilson delves into the secrets of an ancient craft.
British road signs designer Margaret Calvert selects her top ten favourite typefaces, and as always we select some of the most recent must-read design titles from the past 6 months. Issue 3 also features illustrations from Zoe Barker, Ellie Foreman-Peck, Kelsey Dake and Ping Zhu, and cover imagery created by Ari Weinkle.
