Back Cover, a bilingual French graphic design magazine, is a publication analysing graphic design and typography’s practices; and to a larger extend visual arts. This issue includes dialogue between Richard Hollis and Cornel Windlin, Conny Purtill writes on the book that changed his life, Norman Potter and Robin Kinross write on constructing bookshop, Laura Forde meets Fogelson-Lubliner, Joël Vacheron presents Happypets: Audio Tattoos, Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié wonders about Borges' book Ficciones, Victor Guégan and Paul Renner write about Futura typeface, and Peter Biľak speaks to Irma Boom about books.
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.
