The Kaba ornament was designed by Bram de Does for the letterpress typesetting cast by the Enschedé type foundry in 1987, just before its closure in 1990. It was designed in such a way that, that when set at fixed size, in combination with its mirroring countless unique patterns, vignettes, and borders and can be created. This book is the second in the series (see the first book Kaba ornament, 2006) and presents the chromatic exploration of the Kaba ornaments.
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.
