Summer reading alert! Font fans will delight in Codex, a journal-magazine hybrid “for people seriously in love with type.” Founded by writer, designer, and publisher John Boardley, the visually entrancing periodical celebrates and analyzes “the people, tools, and type associated with this craft, from the man carving beautiful cherubim into wood blocks in the 1400s to brilliantly formed modern interpretations and departures.” The latest issue includes a foldout of Gastrotypographicalassemblage (pictured) designed by Lou Dorfsman and Herb Lubalin for CBS.
