Notes on the Type

Better Homes and Gardens

For nearly a century the design of this Meredith publication has been of the “show me, don’t tell me” variety, and in this incarnation, crafted by Maryjane Fahey, nothing has changed. Everything from seed germination to color theory can be found in its pages, with informational typography aided by several families in the Freight series. On a personal note, it was wonderful to hear about this redesign, as about half of the meals I ate as a child were from my mother’s trusty BH&G cookbook.
