Wordshape is now working with Idea to offer select issues of Idea Magazine for sale online direct to the U.S. (sorry, U.S. only).

Contents:

tomato X underworld: formgiving
by John Warwicker
 assisted by Toru Yoshikawa
A Speculative Essay on Process as seen through the lens of the Floating World (Ukiyo-e) featuring the work of tomato:underworld & other collaborative work & an approach to typographics

In this issue, Idea unleashes a spectacular collector’s edition that mixes a dizzying array of special papers, finishes, varnishes and printing processes that highlights the ongoing work of groundbreaking UK design studio tomato and the associated electronic music group underworld.

In lieu of pop fluff, tomato’s John Warwicker offers up a highly articulate collection of musings upon typographic and the world of the imaginative with touchstones in the work of Eric Gill, 7” records, constantly referred-to publications on art and design, markmaking, and family histories. A typographic tour de force, this issue highlights how the deconstructive tendencies of many 90s designers have been twisted to create holistic narrative structures.

Bob Gill: 
Forming illustration and design solutions
An interview with the legendary British illustrator and graphic designer. Includes a copious amount of rare Gill work printed using special papers.

Japanese Techno-zines & FreePapers
by Kentarou Takaoka & Barbora, assisted by Kengo Watanabe

Bound-in Poster
by Fumio Tachibana x NIKE SPORTSWEAR
