Some years back, Ian Phillips created a version of these wonderful editorial headers for a small press magazine. They were used in the design of the various sections: Book Review, Letters, Contributors and Editor’s Note.
Recently I was chatting with Ian about how much I liked these lovely conceptual images and he enthusiastically offered to revisit them in his fresh new style adding text using his new hand created font. To see more of Ian's updated portfolio please visit here.
Voila! People reviewing books…(chop, chop)
Not so friendly letters to the editor…(shall we say fuming?)
Ian says the Contributor's piece was based on the fact that there’s always one bad egg in the bunch. Can you guess who the spoon is? (clue: it starts with 'E')
Ah yes! And there’s always the editor’s note…quite possibly signed in blood!
