8Faces is a new magazine for devotees of typography. That’s us!
The more I post (and you read) these blog entries, the more you will realize how obsessed I am with type. This magazine feeds that obsession and I’ve studied both issues they’ve released from cover to cover. Several times.
This is only the second issues of this beautiful magazine and I did a happy dance when it arrived. It’s printed on heavy stock with a foil-blocked cover, a small run of 2500 limited editions, and is a true collector’s item.
The magazine has one core question at its heart — if you could only use eight typefaces for the rest of your life, which would you choose? — and poses this (and many others) to eight leading designers from the fields of web design, print design, illustration, and of course type design itself.
8 Faces is available internationally but each issues sells out quick. Stay up to date with the latest info at 8faces.com. I’ll keep you posted when I hear rumblings of another issue coming.
This makes me way more happy than it probably should. Hooray for type!
