Zealand, Reflections on Developing a Typeface.
Gibbons, Charles
Visible Language, v33 n3 p254-83 Oct 1999
Considers how much of the writing on type design reflects the technical and pragmatic aspects of its production and how this approach frequently obscures the human dimension of an already arcane art. Draws a parallel between living and working with letters and exploring the natural world. Offers a literary meditation on the motives for, and experience of, making type. (SC)
