Dear friends

I hope you are all fine. At long last I am very pleased to be able to tell you that Simon was on press with Eye 100 last week, and that this special issue is being bound later this week.



If you would like to pre-order a copy, please do it right away (no later than next Tuesday 2 June), to get a copy sent straight to your door.



Marina Amaral, colourised version of Robert F. Sargent’s Into the Jaws of Death (France, 6 June 1944), 2020.

Apart from the flurry of final pages, we have published (and re-published) a few more articles on the website, including ‘Recolouring the past’, Rick Poynor’s latest Photo Critique about the phenomenon of colourisation. In the article, written exclusively for Eye magazine, Rick argues that at a time when image falsification is a source of concern, the digital colourisation of documentary photographs is a retreat from the truth.



Entrance to exhibition at Japan House, London, 2019, with screens based on Anno Mitsumas’s artwork.

On the blog, ‘Virtual Anno’ is a review of ‘Anno’s Journey’ at Japan House, now available as a virtual exhibition and a delightful overview of work by one of Japan’s most revered illustrators.

I’ve also been regularly posting items from the Eye Archive on social media, including ‘Reputations: Barbara Kruger’ from Eye 5, ‘Brand in the hand’ from Eye 94 and ‘Dot dot rock’ from Eye 76, the music design special issue.



Our Events page is full of interesting online experiences, including tomorrow’s magCulture Live, MoMA’s virtual exhibition tours and Lockdown Letterheads, 6-7 June.

Our own forthcoming Type Tuesday will take place on 9 June. We’ll be able to give you a quick look at the contents of Eye 100 courtesy of Zoom and we hope to see you there. More details soon.  

Don’t forget – the quickest way to get your hands on a copy of Eye 100 is to pre-order right now. Alternatively, you could subscribe, starting your subscription with issue 100 – click here. If you are a subscriber, please log in to make sure we have your current delivery address by Tuesday 2 June 2020.


Warmest regards from London

John Walters, editor
