The Nov 17–23 2014 issue of New York magazine is a classic example of how that publication manages to employ a wide variety of typefaces and employ very large/bold type but maintain a close attention to detail in the body type. Throughout the entire issue, the type palette varies hugely from serious workhorse types like Miller to fun retro types like Windsor and New York’s signature Egyptienne — all handled with care and consideration.
The extremes of the type spectrum represented within the issue include a giant full-page single glyph on one hand, but also well-spaced and well-printed body type on the other hand — some of it even knocked out of rich 4-color black backgrounds with surprisingly clear and readable results.
This issue is of note for those interested in typography because the cover story about emoji is composed with emoji symbols inline with the normal body type. Those who missed the original newstand offering can order back issues directly from New York magazine.
