Rick Poynor looks back over two decades of the Designers Republic plus, Spanish type case art, Alison Carmichael and our very own Mumbai taxi – all in the April issue of CR

Rick Poynor looks back over two decades of the Designers Republic plus, Spanish type case art, Alison Carmichael and our very own Mumbai taxi – all in the April issue of CR

April is our special issue on type and typography and all things letter-related. As detailed here, our cover features a Mumbai taxi covered in typography specially designed for the issue (watch an interview with the artists here)

We also have a profile of hand-lettering artist Alison Carmichael, whose work has a ribald charm that is proving very popular with ad agencies (hence the punning headline)

And a feature on the recent Art of Lost Words show in which selected designers and illustrators each based a piece on a word that is fast disappearing from the English language

Plus, from Barcelona, Jordi Duró and Meri Cuesta reveal how the remarkable ingenuity of Spanish printers gave rise to a unique form of modernist design

And Rick Poynor’s aforementioned tDR piece (which, in part, draws on his intro for the ill-fated, never-published-despite-what-they-said tDR book), which stretches over six pages and follows up our exclusive revelation that the studio had closed its doors earlier this year

Our subscriber-only Monograph this month features Synthesis, a series of organic forms created by Jeff Knowles

The April issue is on sale from 25 March. Next month: The Annual
