Catalog for An Exhibition About Multi-Script Typefaces
Following the tradition of Bodoni’s expansive landscape of type design, MIKE/SIERRA/TANGO highlights the value of typography in preserving diverse writing systems in a globally connected world.
Scripts are living cultural artifacts, each with its own technical, formal, and historical conventions. This catalog for the 2019 exhibition at the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography at California's ArtCenter (curated by designer Lavinia Lascaris) features a collection of contemporary multi-script typefaces produced by type foundries from around the world.
Included projects illustrate how type families can maintain their characteristics across multiple scripts while at the same time addressing the growing need for multilingual type design due to globalization and new information technologies.
