Antiques Trade Gazette – Excellent New Format.

We’re impressed by the new look Antiques Trade Gazette. The previous version of the auction trade magazine was OK, but how refreshing to see that they’ve reverted to a serif face (for the main text) and slightly emboldened the captions.

If only more designers in the auction industry could be persuaded that our parents’ typographic maxim still holds good – that in printed form serif faces (with sensible leading) are easier to read.

And we much look forward to the day when reversed-out text requires a special licence.

We think editor Noelle McElhatton deserves congratulations, and we hope that ATG’s circulation (currently just about a record for the magazine format) will see a significant boost.
