Vorm In Vlaanderen is a distinctive publication with an interesting legacy. Edited and art directed by the renowned Belgian designer Paul Ibou this magazine brings together art, design and visual culture in a distinctive format of differently weighted glossy, uncoated and dyed papers. It is a lovely example of 80s design publishing.
This is a rare copy of Issue 3. The eye-catching masthead, the interplay of bold and fine detail on the cover and the mix of substrates and metallic inks marks this out. Each page offers something a bit different. Highlights include logos by Paul Ibou, a section on the Antwerp Metro, the English summaries on dyed paper at the back, and of course, the cover; Vorm in semaphore.
The magazine changed format after issue four, favouring a large format newsprint and then evolving into a large format magazine. There are four issues in this standard format, each with a distinctive and appealing cover.
