8Faces: A New Magazine For The Typography Obsessed

8Faces: A New Magazine For The Typography Obsessed

The first issue of a new print publication was sold out in under two hours.

Typophiles rejoice! Who said print was dead? A new print magazine for devotees of typography called 8Faces just sold out their first issue in under two hours.

Printed on heavy uncoated stock, with a foil-blocked cover, and lovingly pressed at just 1000 limited editions, each issue is a true collector’s item. Unlike most magazines, advertising is kept to an absolute minimum and each copy is individually numbered, so 8 Faces will be more at home on your bookshelf than in your magazine rack.

8 Faces editors ask eight leading designers from the fields of web design, print design, illustration, and of course type design, “If you could only use eight typefaces for the rest of your life, which would you choose?”

Issue #1 features interviews with designers Erik Spiekermann, Jessica Hische, Ian Coyle, Jason Santa Maria, Jos Buivenga, Jon Tan and Bruce Willen & Nolen Strals and  The League of Movable Type, a collection of open source fonts.

If you were lucky enough to place an order for their first issue before it sold out, it will start shipping on August 4th, 2010.  If not, you can still buy it in its PDF form. It is available internationally from their website and in a few selected retail outlets in the UK.
