“Robert Bringhurst classifies type based on movements of the time period in which it first appeared. We looked at typefaces from that perspective, by listening to music and looking at artworks from the period. The myriad tiny details that make up a letterform have emotional impact on the entire typeface. Highlighting those rising emotions that are evident in the finished face became the focus of the book. Students selected digital typefaces from Bringhurst's classifications list to investigate but used the metal typefaces available at the Scripps College Press for the emotional descriptions.”.
