Revue Faire No. 1 (Rouge-gorge, Éditions Cent pages by SpMillot)
The very first issue of Sacha Léopold and François Havegeer's Revue Faire [To Look at Things].
This issue is composed of a text (“Rouge-gorge, Éditions cent pages by SpMillot”), with accompanying images, by graphic design educator and theorist Thierry Chancogne. Dealing with the graphic design practice of spMillot (Sophie Millot and Philippe Millot), particularly their design of books, with a particular treatment of the works they designed for the Rouge-gorge [Red throat / Robin] collection of the French publisher Editions Cent Pages, this first issue reveals the possibility of a focused essay that supplements the contemporary understanding of graphic design history and practice. Includes a glossary of terms.
Revue Faire, launched in 2017, is a regularly published critical publication dedicated to the analysis of graphic design, with a particular focus on France, and a broader focus on graphic design in Europe. Each year, 15 bilingual (French and English) 20-page issues are planned to be published. The series, curated by Sacha Léopold and François Havegeer, works with various invited authors; each issue documents a unique, tentacular subject of interest to graphic designers.
