When Aisle One author, Antonio Carusone, says “Prepare to spend the rest of your day on this site,” he isn’t kidding.
He continues: “TM Research Archive is an incredible website that catalogs cover designs of the influencial journal, Typographische Monatsblätter. The site focuses on the issues from 1960 to 1990, the period that had the most influence on modern typography, and it features interviews with designers that have contributed to the publication over the years, as well information on the designer and typeface used for each issue.” (read more)
Here are just a few examples. I find myself most attracted to the earlier design, but all of these covers are fantastic. Listed below each poster are the designers and typefaces used. The links go to the TM archive and serve as a collection of all other posters using that typeface, or all other posters/covers designed by that designer. Enjoy!
