Emigre No. 70

Got the Emigre newsletter today in which they announced the forthcoming publication of Emigre No. 70 which is going to be a 512 page book by Rudy Vanderlans looking back over the history of the magazine and the company.

Quote from the email:
"This 512-page book, designed and edited by Emigre co-founder and designer Rudy VanderLans, is a selection of reprints that traces Emigre’s development from its early bitmap design days in the mid 1980s through to the experimental layouts that defined the so-called “Legibility Wars” of the late 1990s, to the critical design writing of the early 2000s. 
Featuring interviews with, among others, The Designers Republic, Allen Hori, Rick Valicenti, Vaughan Oliver, Mr. Keedy, Ed Fella, and essays by Lorraine Wild, Anne Burdick, Zuzana Licko, Kenneth FitzGerald, Andrew Blauvelt, Kalle Lasn, Rick Poynor and many more."

I imagine its going to be really really expensive, but it's fair to say that i cant wait to at least TRY and get my hands on a copy!
