Third issue of Back Cover, a bilingual French graphic design magazine. In this issue: A Conversation Between Karel Martens and Robin Kinross, and contributions by Metahaven on design manifestos, Wim Crouwel on book by Karl Gerstner, Jost Hochuli on systematic book design, Roland Früh on modern typography, stdin on design and programming, and Catherine de Smet.
This is a 2019 reprint of the book first published in 1992. Kinross argues that ‘modern typography’ is more than just a modernism of style. Typography, in this book is considered in the light of the social, political and technical changes of the recent period.
