Starting from issue N° 11 (June 2017), Pulp features Sole Serif for headlines and text.
Originally designed in 2010 by Luciano Perondi for Italy’s leading financial paper Il Sole 24 Ore, Sole Serif has all the attributes of a newspaper face: big x-height, short ascenders and a roundish and wide italic for text and titles. Nonetheless, details like the inclined axis, calligraphic terminations, Renaissance proportions and a refined but slightly mannered design, all evoke the book rather than the daily paper.
Pulp is a ‘quarterly journal of people and paper’ produced for Fedrigoni in two editions (Italian/English and French/Spanish) by Eye magazine’s editorial staff: John L. Walters, editor, Simon Esterson, art director, Holly Catford, art editor, Sarah Snaith, assistant editor, and Janet South, business manager. Printing techniques, fonts, layouts, graphic and editorial projects, illustrations, photographs, archives, swapping ideas with the people who get all this on the move and all the paper they use for their projects: these are the topics that Pulp has been covering since its first issue (March 2014).
