A series of book covers produced in Cuba from the 1960-70s appeared in Gratuitous Type No.1. If you missed it, a selection of these covers is now excerpted on 50 Watts, an incredible source for (mostly) book-related design and illustration, created and maintained by Will Schofield.
Gratuitous Type (along with some of my most favorite magazines ever!) is on view at the Facing Pages 2012 Magazine Library this weekend. Very excited to be part of this super biennial independent magazine festival. If you’re attending, make sure to stop by the exhibition for a look at the new issue.
Today’s 2 is an animated beauty from Brett Yasko! Brett is a wonderful graphic designer based in Pittsburgh, who created this gif with a little help from his family. “I asked my kid (who’s in second grade) to collect a bunch of “2”s from his friends at school,” explains Brett.
