Emigre just released Emigre No. 70: The Look Back Issue – Celebrating 25 Years in Graphic Design. The book lovingly traces the history of the magazine from its start in the late 1980s through today. The 512-page book covers all 69 issues of Emigre magazine showing off how it influenced and reflected the trends in the design community. Rudy VanderLans designed the book and it has interviews with The Designers Republic, Rick Valicenti, Vaughan Oliver, Ed Fella and much, much more. It is a must have for every designer whether you are a seasoned veteran designer who designed through the 80s or a fresh-faced design student just starting out.
Coinciding along with the release of the book, there will be a show at Gallery 16 in San Francisco showing off various spreads from the magazine, press sheets and promotional posters so check it out from December 18, 2009 - January 30, 2010.
