ROBERT HARLING was a key figure in mid twentieth-century graphic design, editor before the war of Typography and later House & Gardens, which he edited between 1951 and 1993. At the start of the war, and being a keen sailor, he took part in the Dunkirk evacuation, before serving on Atlantic convoy duty. His close friend Ian Fleming was then responsible for his transfer to the newly established unit 17Z where he spent the rest of the war, involved with liaison between the naval intelligence division and British propaganda teams. He died in 2008.
