Dutch graphic designer Hansje van Halem creates textures, patterns and lettering. This 80-pages book presents her dizzying array of commissioned, applied, self-generated, rejected and unfinished sketches, type drawings, motifs and experiments – both successes and failures, both used and unused. This tour-de-force book is printed in multiple inks, with additional risoprint and digital printed pages, on seven different papers.
The first, and until now the only, book exploring in-depth Tibetan type and typography. This book presents research regarding the origin, development, and typographical function of letter types in Tibetan writing, from their beginnings in 1738 to the present.
