Perhaps a tad more reader effort required in this visually rich issue. To steal our own sub-title, matter and messages steal centre stage, with the fascinating natural structures of Gyongy Laky and Ivan Chermayeff’s award-winning collages.
Oscar Mariné’s fusion of art with advertising reminds us how such an integration can enhance communication, while the Japanese theatre tickets, presented by Steven Heller, provide a decorative interlude.

Visually rich then and thought provoking. More to prove that the boundaries between type, typography, and art, can be intentionally blurred to good effect.
