Abstract

Words are important—not just what they say, but how they look. To quote Ellen Lupton, from her book Thinking with Type, “Typography is what language looks like.” Language has always been symbolic, although the origins of such symbols (of certain letterforms relating to, for example, animals) has largely been lost in written English; instead, we now have rather more abstract symbols designed for repetition on the page or screen.
