U&lc magazine (Upper & lower case) was a defining voice in international graphic design between 1973 and 1999. It was in some ways a lifestyle magazine for the design community - providing a fascinating intersection of popular culture and graphic design in the last quarter of the 20th century.
The list of editorial contributors to U&lc is long, beginning with founding designer/editor Herb Lubalin; many prominent designers worked on designing entire issues. Their finest work is showcased in this book, in reproductions of selected covers, stories, and illustrations from the nearly 100 quarterly issues that were published. The book leads off with a number of articles about the phenomenon that was U&lc, written by writers, editors, and designers who were closely involved over the years.
