New Work: Circular 16
This issue features articles on Spin, Bibliothèque, Fernando Gutiérrez, the late Ken Dickinson, Design Project and a piece by Jeremy Leslie charting the development of editorial design from The New Yorker of 1925 through Nova to Re- and Carl*s Cars. Also featured are Pentagram’s own Harry Pearce and Domenic Lippa.
Lippa has designed the last nine issues of Circular and delights in creating each from scratch. In this issue the close up of the title on the cover through the contents pages and dividers indicates a desire to focus on the detail of the work. The use of Courier as the default font set without justification is designed to act in contrast to the typographic perfection of the featured work.
