Logo Histories’ Extra Issue unlocks insights lost to time, hidden away in rare, out-of-print and vintage design magazines and books published between 1950 and 1979. It’s a free-to-access resource for students, practicing designers and researchers, delivered as a regular newsletter and part of a growing archive.


Having collected a lot of design magazines from the past, I’ve frequently lost articles and struggled to find these again. This newsletter is really a personal collation of design insights that I can return to and learn from. By placing these here on Substack, I can share these with others.


This newsletter is free, however, if you’d like support the project and help us acquire more historical materials, you can become a paid subscriber below.
