Pack of three newsprint papers
50 Reading Lists (Spin/2) is a paper based on asking major figures in graphic design the question: what are the top ten books that you believe designers should read? Spin founder Tony Brook notes that 'the great thing about books – besides the way they look, smell and feel – is that they can set off sparks in your mind and fires in your heart'. But which books are worth picking up from the pile? Leading designers such as Wim Crouwel, Experimental Jetset, Alan Fletcher, Peter Saville and Ian Anderson give us a glimpse into their libraries. 48 pages.
ThreeSix: A System of Six Optical/Geometric Typefaces in Eight Weights (U:D/R 03) is designed and written by Hamish Muir and Paul McNeil – with an introduction by Wim Crouwel. This research paper reveals the aesthetic and ideological thinking behind the new typeface ThreeSix. It explores the possibilities of using parametric principles to design geometric fonts which are distinctive at large point sizes but which can also be read at smaller sizes in bodies of extended text. 24 pages.
England's Burning: The Story of the English Riots Told in Pictograms (U:D/R 04) tells the story of the riots without words, beginning with the tragic shooting of Mark Duggan in north London and the ensuing peaceful protests, followed by the first outbursts of civil disorder, the looting of shops, the police response, the clean up, the hunting of suspects, and finally the draconian sentencing. 32 pages.
Editors: Tony Brook & Adrian Shaughnessy
