Edited an designed by Maria Inês Cruz and Lozana Mehandzhiyskan, Typography with a view“:http://typographyview.tumblr.com is an annual journal that documents the activities of the postgraduate student community in the Department of Typography at the University of Reading. This department is one of the best place to learn type design in Europe. Images of archival materials were shot in the Special Collections of the Department unless otherwise stated. The journal launch was June 18th, at the final display exhibition of MA work at the Department of Typography. The journal covers subjects linked to book and information design, and of course typography.
In this first issue, you can read articles about the information design on recycling plastics or the personnal narrative of a student of the MA traveling threw Australia, India and Great Britain and pointing the differences of their typographic cultures. Yes, really wide. Typography with a view surprises and pleases by this wide approach on the type subject. On this side, it remains the work of The Shelf Journal that we interviewed earlier this year.
