{     U&LC     }    

U&lc magazine (upper & lower case) was a graphic design / typography magazine published by the ITC foundary for 25 years. Its purpose was to promote the ITC foundary family but also to promote good design. Many issues were designed by guest designers/studios. For most of it's life it was a free publication, and its print run was huge. The magazine had a huge influence on the design world, and as type/design technology changed, the magazine grew with the trends. Over the years a ton of valuable topics and talent were covered, and if you were lucky enough like me to grow up in a graphic designing family during the 90's, going back and looking at old covers/articles of U&LC, their influence is obvious. For those of you that have never seen a copy of the now out of print magazine, U&lc : Influencing Design & Typography is an important resource in understanding how graphic design has evolved over the past 25 years. Those of you/us that have only been a part of the industry for less than 10 years have no idea how dramatic of a change it was, when the industry as a whole had to adapt to things like... a .. computer. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this archive of the best articles and covers U&lc ever printed. Its a big book and there is a lot to absorb. You may learn a little bit about good design, but you will also learn alot about a legend in the design world. - Contributed by Dustin:

After reading about U&lc in your blog I ordered it for myself and its easily the best typography book I own. Its visually stunning as well as being such a rich portrait of the history of design. Can you think of anything else that can match this in its caliber and scope? Id be interested in more recommendations.
