It defines itself as "the international review of graphic design "and, indeed, the magazine founded in 1990 by Rick Poynor and today directed by John L. Walters can be considered a bit like the bible of the industry. Every quarter, Eye puts the latest graphics trends in black (and other colors) on white. The white, then, is not left to chance, but is that of three different types of paper that make up one of the most collected and edited magazines in the world.
The focus of the magazine is graphics and visual arts, explored with insights, interviews, comments, reviews and images.

In the foreground: Thomas Huot-Marchand, Laura Meseguer, November, Joe Caroff, the Nebiolo project and "Global type tour", an extensive report from Typographics 21.7
