Emigre No. 70: The Look Back Issue
Published by Gingko Press
In the incredible design upheaval that was the 1990s until the mid-2000s, Emigre published 69 Issues of their highly coveted Emigre Magazine. Each issue was packed with essays, illustration, photography, and new type form Emigre's foundry, and if you're at all familiar with design history I don't need to elaborate on how desirable it was. The Last Issue, No. 70 "The Look Back Issue" is a fond farewell to the legacy of the magazine and all its achievements and accomplishments. Similar to Johnny Cason's or David Letterman's farewell show: a parade of celebrities and friends come by to pay homage and say goodbye to such a legendary publication. We love having this book on our shelf, if only just to own a piece of the history.
