Are typographers and type designers really black-and-white thinkers? Are they so conservative as to think that the text you see everywhere, even on your laptop, tablet, or mobile phone, should always be black? Traditionally, texts in manuscripts were written in black, but this is probably because of the technical limitations of Gutenberg’s groundbreaking invention. Mark van Wageningen is pushing to change this accepted norm. With text and design by Van Wageningen, a (typo-)graphic designer and founder of Novo Typo, an Amsterdam-based type foundry and graphic design studio, and a preface by Gerard Unger, this book celebrates the functionality and decoration of letters.
