Typography

Type + Graphic Typography is the craft of endowing human language with a durable visual form, and thus with an independent existence. —Robert Bringhurst, The Elements of Typographic Style

“Typography is the art of printing. It has as its first object not ornament but utility. The printer must never distract, even with beauty, the reader from his text.” --- School of Communication and Creative Arts, Deakin University, Australia

The earliest surviving works belonging to Bi Sheng. The earliest surviving European letterforms are Greek (scratched in stone). In time, these thin, primarily straight lined forms with open apertures, developed thicker strokes, their apeture lessened, and serifs were created. These forms were the basis for the the formal lettering of the Roman Empire.
