This morning I noticed my copy of Romantik that I bought a while back with such enthusiasm and promptly seem to have forgotten about.

Like the cover of that Pentagram book.
Pentagram have long been one of those companies I've considered as 'designosaurs', probably because their most significant contribution to design is in the past and is part of that 'unsophisticated minimalism' that Michael Johnson also seems to win awards for.
Never really been to my tastes.

Thats said, I'm always partial to seeing a bit of tight corporate typography with a twist of imagination thrown in, so if the cover is any measure…

That Matter of Identity might have to go on the list too.

Might need to have a browse around the Magma site to see what's fresh.
