The Triumph of Typography investigates current typographic practices. Typography is far more than type design and layout. It touches on one of the key values of our society: the printed free word, democratic discourse. The book discusses the role of technology, design, and language in our understanding of possibilities of typography. Can typography still play a significant role when digitisation and new media shake at the foundations of the typographic trade? What direction will it take in its further development? This forward-looking books outlines the new developments and 21 practitioners in the fields of typography and communication share their expertise with fascinating analyses and examples. With contributions by: Peter Biľak, Petr van Blokland, Hans Rudolf Bosshard, Paul van Capelleveen, Roger Chartier, Paul Dijstelberge, Yuri Engelhardt, Willem Frijhoff, Christof Gassner, Michael Giesecke, Britt Grootes, Gerard Hadders, Henk Hoeks, Ralf de Jong, Ewan Lentjes, Ellen Lupton, Lev Manovich, Jack Post, Rick Poynor, José Teunissen, Wouter Weijers.
