Graphic Design 39, 1970
Graphic Design / グラフィックデザイン was a monthly Japanese magazine published by Diamond Publishing that explored graphic design and visual culture. This covered the latest in Japanese design and some of its history as well as international developments, competitions, exhibitions and new publications. As well as designer showcases, reviews and reportage. It is distinctive in its proportionality, 300mm × 260mm (which feels nearly square), and in its mix of papers, use of tip ins and fold outs.
The highlight of this issue is the feature on the KLM and DSM visual identities. This includes images of the KLM standards manual, printed at a size and quality I've not seen before. Really lovely full double page spreads.
