The latest issue of Baseline has been published ‘under new ownership’. Hans Dieter Reichert, of Kent consultancy HDR Design, and editor Mike Daines were asked by original publisher Letraset in May 1994 to overhaul the magazine.

Baseline 19 also sees Pentagram’s Alan Fletcher joining the editorial board. Daines and Reichert have worked together before on revamping Typographic, the journal of the Society of Typographic Designers.
