Science Fiction Typography

Milan’s Matteo Gualandris gives us some nice vintage inspirations in ‘Science Fiction Typography’, which is an analytical story of typographic used in America’s most popular science fiction magazines published between 1930 and 1970. Publications as broad as Marvel Science Stories, Astounding Stories, Amazing Stories and Fantasy Thrilling Science Fiction all come under the spotlight with a main focus on cover headlines. To create the very special ‘used’ look, Gualandris kept it folded into his back pockets for days.

  1. What an incredible reference! I wish I would have known about this book earlier this year when I was organizing and researching an exhibit of original pulp art illustrations. Science Fiction Typography could have made designing our exhibit logo so much easier. To see what we came up with and to learn more about “Maidens and Monsters: The Art of Science Fiction, Adventure and Fantasy” visit http://www.MaidensAndMonsters.com. The exhibit includes 50 original paintings, as well as the vintage pulp magazines they appeared on including Weird Tales, Amazing Stories and Fantastic Adventures.
