Royal Mail Post Office First Day Cover

Take a look back at the year 1972

1972 (MCMLXXII) was a leap year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, the 1972nd year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 972nd year of the 2nd millennium, the 72nd year of the 20th century, and the 3rd year of the 1970s decade.

Within the context of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) it was the longest year ever, as two leap seconds were added during this 366-day year, an event which has not since been repeated. (If its start and end are defined using mean solar time [the legal time scale], its duration was 31622401.141 seconds of Terrestrial Time (or Ephemeris Time), which is slightly shorter than 1908).[1]

Typography 2 Book Project

Typography 2 Book Project

Course: Typography 2 (Fall 2008)

Instructor: Kim Beckmann-Moegenburg

Project: A Typographic Morphology

Description: The project is a series of exercises that present students with a typographic morphological study. The study is designed to develop a mastery of typographic principles for paginated print-based systems and their technical execution over an eight week period. Additionally, the study affords students the opportunity to critically reflect upon their personal creative provenance and its relationship to practitioners within their discipline of study. Conceptually it puts the student in the shoes of an urbanologist by examining the constructs of cities through the writings of Italo Calvino in Invisible Cities. The final result of this project is a 9in x 7in, full color, perfect bound book that is produced by Required book for the course, The Elements of Typographic Style by Robert Bringhurst. Students construct the book using Adobe InDesign and whatever other programs they feel is necessary to create and/or manipulate image and display type to communicate their ideas.

Book Components:
•Front cover
•Front matter
•Half title page
