In our October issue we have a major feature on the rise of Riso printing, celebrate the art of sign painting, examine the credentials of 'Goodvertising' and look back at the birth of D&AD


D&AD is 50 this year. Mark Bonner of GBH design looks back to the founding of the organisation, tracing its roots and interviewing the art directors and designers who came together to give British design and art direction a much-needed platform


In addition to the issue this month, subscribers will receive a special 36-page supplement, sponsored by Tag, celebrating D&AD's 50th with details of all those honoured with Lifetime Achievement awards plus pieces on this year's Black Pencil and President's Award-winners Derek Birdsall and Dan Wieden


Back to the magazine and a wonderful celebration of the art of sign painting thanks to a new book from Princeton Architectural Press. We have an extract and fantastic images


What is it about Riso printing that has made it so popular among designers, illustrators and artists? We trace the rise of Riso and profile three leading Riso presses – in Berlin, London and Glasgow.


In Crit this month, Rebecca Lynch reviews the Book of Books, a survey of 500 years of book design


Jeremy Leslie explains how the daily London 2012 magazine delivered all the news and stories of the Games


Gordon Comstock critiques new book, Goodvertising, featuring ads to make the world a better place


And Michael Evamy explores website, offering "data-driven insights into logo design"


And for subscribers only, this month's Monograph features Rian Hughes' photographs of the unique lettering and illustration styles of British fairgrounds
