Well, it worked so well with Non-Format that we’ve decided to do it again…
Send in your questions, we’ll put them to Mr Barnbrook

Jonathan Barnbrook – typographer, graphic designer, graphic agitator and all-round Bush-baiter par excellence – has a busy summer ahead. Not only is he just about to publish his first monograph – provocatively entitled Barnbrook Bible (you didn’t expect anything less did you?) – but he is also to be the subject of a show at London’s Design Museum.

We felt it an apt moment to run a feature on him, his work and his ideas and we wanted to give all our readers the opportunity to come up with some questions for him. Please put up your questions for Jonathan as a comment to this post or email them directly to patrick.burgoyne@centaur.co.uk. We will select the best and publish his answers in our June issue and on this blog.

The Non-Format interview will be featured in our May issue, out 26 April.

Below are more spreads from Barnbrook’s upcoming book.
