Contents:

  • Roy Bishop's short history of the Observer's Handbook

In addition to the entire stable of regulars, each with their own column, we showcase some glorious images in a full-colour centrefold —a new regular feature!!

And last, but not least, a column describing the unique character of the fonts used in the Journal—a special feature by our layout professional, Brian Segal.
