Typographica Old Series complete 1-16 | Typography Graphic Design Type Specimen
1949. Typographica (Old/original Series) 16 issues London : Lund Humphries. Rare complete set of 16 issues of the Old Series. Original softcovers with dust jackets. Profusely illustrated with original lithographs (often tipped-in as frontispieces), photographic reproductions, type specimens, colour reproductions, type ornament, and much use of different paper stocks. The British publication, Typographica, remains one of the most eclectic design publications ever produced and is obsessively collected by aficionados of design and art. This complete set is a remarkable artefact of the 60s and a testament to Herbert Spencer's visionary approach to design. Herbert Spencer's Typographica magazine fused new typography and graphic design, avant-garde art, printing history, accounts of the Modernist pioneers and environmental photography to create one of the most remarkable journals ever to emerge from British cultural publishing. Typographica was unusual not only for the consistency of its editorial vision but for its longevity: it was published in London in two series of sixteen issues each, from 1949 to 1967. Some spines frayed as shown in images. Offered for sale as is. Please see images for details before buying.
