The magazine Typographica – brainchild of founder, editor, designer, and renowned typographer HERBERT SPENCER – had a brief life, a total of 32 issues published over nineteen years. But its influence stretched, and stretches, far beyond its modest distribution and print runs of the time. Remarkably, Spencer never intended to turn a profit, so no expenses were spared in the making of the magazine.
