Cyrus Highsmith , senior designer at the Boston-based Font Bureau, has written a short book on the basics of typography that, despite its odd approach—or maybe because of it—promises to become a standard text in introductory typography courses. The book, to be formally released next month during TypeCon 2012, in Milwaukee, is called Inside Paragraphs: Typographic Fundamentals , an accurate yet prosaic title that belies its charms. It is a simple book with a simple premise, which means that it is actually a very deep book.

Towards the end of 2011, Spanish high street travel agent Vibo (formally Viajes Iberia) began to roll out its new visual identity developed by international design consultancy Saffron as part of a new strategy to differentiate itself from an increasingly generic market place. Following this rebrand, Saffron has published some of the signage and printed collaterals that make up the visual identity system (alongside a new logo-type) that offers an imaginative alternative to conventional destination photography.

In the 1920s and 1930s, Japan embraced new forms of graphic design as waves of social change swept across the nation. This collection of 50 posters, magazine covers and advertisements offer a glimpse at some of the prevailing tendencies in a society transformed by the growth of modern industry and technology, the popularity of Western art and culture, and the emergence of leftist political thought.

Françoise Mouly, the New Yorker’s art editor since 1993, doesn’t have normal relationships with the artists who draw the magazine’s covers. “Think of me as your priest,” she told one of them. Mouly, who co-founded the avant-garde comics anthology RAW with her husband, Art Spiegelman, asks the artists she works with—Barry Blitt, Christoph Niemann, Ana Juan, R.
Hungarian designer Martzi Hegedűs has created a single typeface, titled Frustro , on the sole premise of making it impossible. Based on the illusion of the Penrose triangle (which is by definition, an impossible object whose creator deemed it “impossibility in its purest form”) the type appears to be facing two different directions simultaneously. His diagram explaining the structure of the Frustro “R” is the highlight of his display– it neatly puts together top left and bottom right corners of two 3D renderings of the letter, making it clear how he imagined each letter as an extension of the Penrose triangle. Fascinating– I only wish this was available for download, it looks like a typographer’s dream (or perhaps) nightmare come true. [Via Jon Lee. ] <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

The original edition of the book with dust-jacket. I used to spend a lot of time as a kid visiting antique (actually, “junk”) shops. It was like visiting a museum, except you pick up stuff and hold it. One of the things I found (probably around 1972) was a book by author George Lowther from 1942 about Superman. I’d never heard about this novel and considering the amount of time I spent obsessing about comicbooks , I was surprised and puzzled by it all of a sudden popping up!
