Ten years in style
The Sunday Times Style magazine celebrates its 10th anniversary this Sunday, supported by a press and poster campaign by Grey London that makes use of satin and some fine embroidered typography...
The special edition of Style will publish with the newspaper on September 23 and be available in ten different front covers. Grey worked with embroidery company Hand & Lock on the campaign to evoke "ten year's in style".
Executive creative director: Nils Leonard. Creative: Lex Firth, Clemmie Telford. Typography: Paul Reddington. Senior creative producer: Sarah Burns. Account director: Clare Anderson. Embroidery: Hand & Lock. Photographer: Tom Brown.

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 and Michael Evamy explores website emblematic.com, offering "data-driven insights into logo design". In addition to the issue this month, subscribers will receive a special 36-page supplement 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. And subscribers also receive Monograph which this month features Rian Hughes' photographs of the unique lettering and illustration styles of British fairgrounds
