Right from its start in 1973, U&lc rocked the socks off graphic designers and type lovers across America and the world. I have not found any estimates of circulation during the earlier years, but at its peak approximately 200,000 copies were distributed worldwide.
For those who have never seen an actual copy of U&lc, the page reproductions are quite good and even retain the yellow brown patina of aged newsprint, except shrunk down from the original tabloid size to fit the book's 9 1/4 x 12 7/8 dull coated offset sheets.
In addition to Berry's article on The business of type, there are stories by Joyce Rutter Kaye, Rhonda Rubinstein and Steven Heller, three veterans of U&lc, each bringing behind-the-scene views and insights into what made the magazine remarkable.
If you don't own any old issues, the U&lc: influencing design and typography book from Mark Batty Publisher is as close as it gets. Just be aware that your graphic designer friends will want to borrow the book - it's part of the U&lc pass-along readership legacy.
