Pardon my French, but that is goddamn gorgeous.
Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for posting this.
a master piece! elegant, simple, and outstanding design work.
Excuse my ignorance but can anyone tell me what typeface that is used for the headings, or is it a custom one ? it looks amazing on the magazine, really beautifully put together this.
The type used for the headings is the Didoni URW D. The type used for the text is the Minuscule.
This is an enormous plagiarism of Harper’s Magazine.
Pick up a copy at Barnes & Noble and compare the third photograph. A dead ringer.
This has got that bad 70’s kodacolor kinda look all the way around. I guess it goes to prove nothing stays out of style forever. Not even bad technology.
I’ve seen this for the third time now, and I’m convinced that I’ll be haunted by the photos, type, and design for the rest of my life.
Very well done.
This has got the 70’s look in it! and its somehow very poignant. kudos to the creator!
The shear simplicity of the the typography is just, coupe with the texture of the image and the illustration is incredible. The way the page numbers are layout out is very inspiring.
Thanks for the post.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
