Within – Howard Tangye
Type design for publication, Within – Howard Tangye.
Within is a long-overdue survey of Howard Tangye’s remarkable work as an artist. For decades, Tangye has inspired the fashion industry as Head of Womenswear Design at Central Saint Martins College. Within presents Tangye’s lifelong passion for drawing, examining his method of undertaking a drawing, his connection to the sitter and his consideration of the hidden human structure beneath layers of clothes. The typeface used throughout the publication responds to this approach by imagining a skeleton of an existing typeface. Commissioned texts, photography and considered material combinations enable a reader of the publication to experience Tangye’s creative world.
