Collection of Research on Chinese Typography - book of 3

typography | new releases

A bilingual volume (English and Chinese) of three booklets  collectively titled Collection of Research on Chinese Typography.  Shanghai Type: a slice of modern Chinese type history, the first booklet provides an historic overview of state-sponsored type-founding practices in Shanghai since the 1940's.  Calling for a re-establishment of the Chinese aesthetic standard in typography, the second booklet, Kongque Project: restoring the mindset of Chinese typesetting, excavates Chinese typographic traditions that had been forgotten in recent decades and brings them to the digital era.  The third booklet Transcultural type:  a dialogue from China, records a panel discussion between typographers and designers, both domestic and overseas, about design contexts and strategies in an increasingly multicultural world.  The book was initially launched in English only at the 2019 edition of ATypl (Association Typographique Internationale) the world's leading design and typography conference.  Initial popularity prompted a revised bilingual edition.
