Font Study (TIME) by Mungo Thomson

We just completed custom hardcover artist books with Mungo Thomson and LACMA! These books feature custom buckram book cloth, custom foil stamping, and bookmark ribbon.

“Font Study (TIME),is a limited edition of 50, signed and numbered, and bound and embossed in the style of library periodicals. This artist book collects Thomson’s drawings of the TIME magazine logo as it has evolved over the years, from the earliest sample in 1922 to the present day, in what the artist has termed “a phenomenological font study.” The result is a slow-motion flip-book that is a study of time, mass culture, graphic design, the book, and the nature of reading.”
