That’s right, type lovers: There are only two more issues to go and the  seventh and penultimate issue of our highly collectable magazine will be available to order from 8faces.com this Friday at 4pm BST.

We’ve also got essays from Christopher Murphy and Typekit’s Bram Stein, and a foreword written by Adrian Shaughnessy.

The cover will feature laser-cut artwork to form a double-cover peep show affair. I’ll be revealing more over the next couple of days so stay tuned.

Valentine’s day idea?
Not only is the lettering beautiful —  that split ‘Type’ — but I’m loving the soft indentation on the ‘spongy’ paper and the depth of colour from this scarlet ink. This limited edition letterpress print might make a nice gift…
OK yes, I just convinced myself and bought one.
