The time has finally come: we’ve published our eighth and final issue, and it’s now available to buy. Orders will ship straight away and each one includes a beautiful type catalogue from House Industries — as well as an immediate download of the PDF edition.

We’ve pulled out all the stops with the cover: silver foil, gold foil, and clear foil make for our most eye-catching cover to date!

Issue #8 includes interviews with 8 Faces’ creator Elliot Jay Stocks, magCulture founder Jeremy Leslie, Creative Characters author Jan Middendorp, Principal Designer at Adobe Type Robert Slimbach, non-Latin type expert Fiona Ross, designer / educator / writer Steven Heller, and type-designing duo Erica Jung and Ricardo Marcin of Pintassilgo Prints. We also have essays from Tim Brown and Christopher Murphy.

Issue #8

What is 8 Faces?

If you could use just eight typefaces, which would you choose? 8 Faces is a magazine that asks this question — and many more — to eight leading designers from the fields of print, web, illustration, and of course type design itself. Eighty-eight pages of in-depth interviews, critical essays, and inspiration from the very best in the business.

We pride ourselves on producing a printed magazine that you’ll want to keep on your bookshelf. Our covers are adorned with our foil-blocked silver logo and each issue is an experiment with an attention-grabbing new printing technique.
