This iconoclastic collection of essays on typography, writing and life is the work of Gerrit Noordzij, a master calligrapher and teacher of lettering and type design at The Hague. Letterletter opens up whole new perspectives on not just the world of letterforms but on the world and the written word, in general. Occasionally cranky, always well-written and insightful, Letterletter is an invaluable design tool and, more importantly, a pure pleasure to read. As Noordzij notes, "Its lack of dignity, authority and tolerance could not prevent Letterletter from becoming a collectors item."Reseña del editor:
This iconoclastic collection of essays on typography, writing and life is the work of calligrapher, type designer and teacher of lettering and design, Gerrit Noordzij. Originally a series of 15 issues of a sporadic journal, the articles form a contribution to the literature of type. The letters are intended to open up new perspectives on the "science of art and the art of science" and the work is intended for all those who care about the written word. Essays include: "Writing as Shape"; "The Increase of Illiteracy"; "The Dimensions of the Mental Image and its Origin"; "The Nature of Writing"; "The Truth About the Serif"; and "Techniques of Engraved Lettering".
