Disse to ukene skal jeg lære om historien og utviklingen av fonter, samt typografiske prinsipper. Her er noen linker til kilder jeg har blitt anbefalt av skolen iht pensum:
Typography allows for the arrangement of letters and words to be reassembled and replicated as few or as many times as is needed to communicate a message. Typography uses signs (letters) to represent spoken and written language.
Typography isn’t handwriting
Typography isn’t lettering
Typography isn’t sign-writing
Typography isn’t carving letters into stone or wood by hand
Typography isn’t graffiti
Typograhphy isn’t building letters out of matchsticks.
