Eight Five Zero (8vo), UK, 11.75 x 8.25", 16 pp., English

Edited, designed and published in an edition of 3,000 copies by Eight Five Zero (8vo) as an eight issue series between 1986 and 1992. This fourth issue features Wolfgang Weingart's historic 1972 illustrated lecture manuscript ‘How Can One Make Swiss Typography?’ Previously only available in a limited photocopied edition, this seminal work has been updated and its importance reassessed fifteen years on, in a new introduction written by the author. Beautifully designed and printed, highly recommended!

Near fine with a hint of wear and its original, vellum printed wrapper.
