    Guest edited and designed by Gail Swanlund, Emigre #28 includes interviews with Laurie Haycock Makela, Somi Kim, and Barbara Glauber who also designed the inside cover. Like most issues of Emigre the magazine was an opportunity to show off a new Emigre typeface. In this case it was the wild OutWest by Edward Fella, a designer best known for his lettering. An ad for the font is shown on the last page: “OutWest: On a fifteen degree ellipse”, as well as a preview of the upcoming Backspacer. OutWest is used throughout the issue – even for text – along with Citizen and Template Gothic.

    Letterform Archive holds Emigre’s complete paper archive, including font catalogs and development files, and a complete run of Emigre magazine. Full issues (including this one) will soon be available in the institution’s Online Archive, and members can get a preview of the website while it’s in beta.

    See Ed Fella’s talk about Analog Letterforms to the Nth Degree on June 14 at Typographics. Fonts In Use is proud to be a media partner of the conference. See more work by speakers of the 2019 edition.

      I have such a soft spot for this one… It has been the very first Emigre Magazine issue that I purchased and… it quite blew me away. :-)
