  • 8 Faces


    (0 reviews)

    A bi-annual magazine founded by Elliot Jay Stocks, based on the “Desert Island” concept applied to type. In each issue eight designers whose work is known for its typographical slant, are asked the question: “if you could only use eight typefaces for the rest of your life, what would they be?”. The interviews then expand into open-ended discussions about all things typographic and are punctuated with examples of the designers’ work.

    The interviews are also accompanied by various related contributions.

    The entire run consists of four issues. A book which will collect them is in the works.
