Glyph is a visual exploration of marks and glyphs in the Latin alphabet - some that we use every day, and some of which have been virtually lost in the sands of time. From and to } to *, each mark has a brief explanation of its use and history, and a grid of its most interesting typographic representations. Who knew, for example, that the ampersand was once a letter in the alphabet?!
Conceived and designed by Shiro Nishimoto and Adriana Caneva of London design studio Off-White, this book features their striking, minimal approach to design. Combined with luxurious packaging including hard-cut greyboard edges and liberal use of neon throughout, this book will be of great appeal to linguists, typographers and design-afficionados alike.
