An uncommon original collection of fourteen typographic journals with nonconsecutive numbers from 1971-1975 starting with Vol. 3, No. 1 and ending with Vol. 7, No. 1. Typographic “i” was the promotional journal for ITCA published from c. 1970 through 1986, perhaps longer with later issues published by various editors and designers.
Individual issues are printed in one color on various colored stocks and heavily illustrated throughout featuring design and typographic related content including: corporate identity, designer and project profiles, letterform studies, typeface and book reviews, typographic distinctions, type puzzles, and more. Typefaces used are identified in the Colophon for each issue.
All issues in near fine condition with a hint of wear to the earliest numbers. One issue with a 3-hole punch and previous owners signature and a few others with printers stamps.
