Codex 3 begins with a colorful review by James Clough of the HWT Chromatic Set, the first group of typefaces in the Hamilton Wood Type collection that P22 is digitizing. Next up, Frans Janssen takes a look at the famous 1768 Enschedé type specimen; then an in-depth interview of type designer Freda Sack. Canadian type designer Nick Shinn writes about the hidden history of type in the 20th century, while Greg D’Onofrio and Patricia Belen provide a fascinating & detailed look at Lester Beall’s pioneering corporate identity manual for Connecticut General. Alexander Tochilovsky and Emily Roz follow with a profile of the Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography at Cooper Union. This is supplemented by a beautiful foldout of Gastrotypographicalassemblage designed by Lou Dorfsman and Herb Lubalin for CBS.
