Design Writing Research


I’ve been reading this book lately. I came about it in the library and picked it up not knowing what to expect. I like to pick up random books from the design section at the library and check them out. This one in particular has been very interesting. This book is a critical study of graphic design and typography. It has a section on theory  that discusses the importance of the written word to deconstruction and the formation of languages. The book discusses a wide array of subjects like the history of punctuation, the origins of international pictograms, and the structure of modern typography. The main reason that this book has kept my attention is because of the very visual layout of the pages. It literally puts into practice what Ellen Lupton tries to describe.
