Tinted Window: No.1: Hervé Guibert
'Tinted Window is a journal that publishes compendiums of texts and images that focus on one person, place or object.'
Earlier this year, the brilliant London based design studio, Regular Practice launched a Kickstarter campaign for the first issue of journal, Tinted Window.
The first issue of the magazine will focus on French writer and photographer, Hervé Guibert and will feature originally commissioned as well as newly translated texts. The 96 pages (ish) will be presented in a de-bossed PVC slipcase. It's a printed piece to read and enjoy but also to cherished, they'll be collectable but easy to navigate [not sure if that's the right word]. Regular Practice have also created a new custom font for TW and what a beauty it is.
'Thematically, our scope is wide, but Tinted Window’s defining feature is its commitment to exploding its subject; to seeing it from multiple angles. To these ends, we want to go further than most publishers to bring together new responses from leading writers, and to source new translations into the English language.' - Oscar Gaynor, Tinted Window Editor
Oscar Gaynor and Alex Bennett are the minds behind Tinted Window, both graduates from the Critical Writing Maters programme at the Royal College of Art. The grafters have put their skills to this new venture which we are very excited about.
