London: Eight Five Zero publishing, 1986. First Edition. Softcover. 16pp. 

Issue 1 of the now cult journal of typography: Octavo, which ran from 1986 to 1992. Self-funded and independent, Octavo had a production cap of 3000 copies per issue. The modernist approach of its editors (its eighth and ultimate issue was a CD-ROM) is clear throughout, with the formatting, graphics and technology used to produce each issue embracing the newest developments in typography at the time; showing their artful navigation of the industry's shift from analog to digital.
