Typo magazine #49
This issue of the typographic magazine Typo attempts to present a broader perspective of typography and lettering arts in India, its history as well as some recent design projects. The magazine presents articles and essays from renowned designers, a widely published scholar and historian, and many other type designers both from India and abroad. It is impossible to draw a complete picture of Indian typography in one issue, but Typo has put together a nice selection of what is relevant and even unveils some hard-to-find gems. Recommended to all Indians, non-Indians, and non-Indian Indians.
