icographic 1–11, 13 & 14/15
A rare chance to get hold of a set of 11 sequential issues (plus 13, & 14/15) of icographic from The International Council of Graphic Design (ICOGRADA). The series ran from 1971 to 1978 and included 14 printed issues with the final issue being a special double issue (14 & 15).
This industry journal is a unique piece of graphic design publishing history and a pioneer in design research with special interest in graphic design, typography and education. Aside from a fascinating look at what design publishing was in the 60s and 70s, its content is rich in its diversity of texts and insight. Each issue covers a range of topics which are presented in a delightful four column grid. Each issue is marked by a striking graphic cover, typographic arrangement and colour.
This set includes issues 1, 2 and 12 which are exceptionally hard to come by. This is not surprising as these two have, perhaps, the best covers.
