H F Henderson: Understanding Molecular Typography
(1000 items available)
This publication, an artist’s book by Woody Leslie, introduces readers to the (fictional) lost science of molecular typography, the study of the chemical and physical underpinnings of letters. Leslie brings readers a reprint of the seminal 1992 textbook, Understanding Molecular Typography. Part primer, part field guide, the book makes the science of molecular typography accessible to readers. It lays out the basic principles of the field, followed by detailed diagrams of the molecular formation of type. A conclusion sums up the field to date, and a comprehensive bibliography provides valuable reference for the reader looking to learn more.
