Title: A Metaphysical and linguistic approach to type design and typography
Author: Rocha, Ivan Terestschenko
Abstract: Significant changes have taken place in the type design as a result of what has often been termed "the desktop revolution." With the popularization and increased availability to the average person of typographic tools formerly available only to professionals type is slowly moving into the realm of personal communication. This move has sparked significant controversy among the various schools of typographic thought, but little consensus exists. As well, technological developments are contributing to a widening of the definition of what constitutes a typeface. This study, then, will examine the current views of type design as an art form and the reaches of the technological developments in progress in light of linguistics and metaphysical thought.
