LogoArchive returns with its fifth collaborative Extra Issue: Logo Redux, dedicated to the fascinating theme of Renaissance printers’ marks. These marks, many drawn from the 15th century, appear somewhat modernist in nature. As such, this Extra Issue functions as a “prequel” to previous LogoArchive issues, and positions printers’ marks as a precursor to the modernist corporate trademarks of the mid-century.
Conceptualised by designer, educator and researcher Darren Leader, working in collaboration with Unlocking The Archive, the University of East Anglia and editor Richard Baird, this Extra Issue intends to revive interest in printers’ marks and the inventive typography of renaissance publishing.
Logo Redux is a Limited Edition run, these can be ordered at logoarchive.shop.
