Octavo: Journal of Typography 1–8
London: Eight Five Zero, 1986. First printing. Complete run; issues 1?-7 saddle-stapled into printed card wrappers with wraparound glassine dust-jackets; final issue on CD-ROM. All issues in mint condition, still sealed in publisher's original packaging. Edition of 3000 copies. Simon Johnston and Mark Holt founded 8vo studio in 1984, and were soon joined by Hamish Muir (see Johnston's eponymous web site). In 1986 they launched the influential journal Octavo for a planned run of eight issues. As the editorial in the first issue states: "Octavo has evolved from a desire to see an independent publication which acts as a serious forum for the discussion of matters, both contemporary and historical, relating to typographic design. In its eight issues the journal will focus primarily on typography within graphic design, but will also investigate the way in which letterforms are used in the visual arts, poetry, architecture and the environment, as well as looking at broader matters such as design education." Uncommon, particularly so in a complete run.
