Two revivals - Nóra Békés & Céline Hurka @ AtypI, Tokyo Japan

Nóra Békés & Céline Hurka

€ 1.250

Nóra Békés & Céline Hurka zijn uitgenodigd om een presentatie te geven tijdens AtypI, een internationale typografie conferentie die van 4 tot 7 september 2019 plaatsvindt in Tokio, Japan. In hun presentatie gaan Békés & Hurka in op archiefonderzoek binnen hedendaags typografisch ontwerp. Het onderzoek is eerder gepubliceerd in het boek 'Reviving Type'. Békés & Hurkaschriven hier zelf over: "The studies started as university course assignments and developed into an independent design research: one about the Renaissance letters of Garamont and Granjon, the other about the Baroque types of Nicholas Kis. The publication guides the reader from original sources in archives, through historical investigation, cultural-technological contextualization and design process to the finished typefaces. The first part of the book provides insight into historical changes in type design through visual examples of historical material with theoretical background. The second part gives a thorough explanation of the production of the revival typefaces. Here different approaches are placed side by side, creating a conversation piece about possible working methods and conceptual standpoints in type design. Altogether, the publication is a 'cookbook' for anyone who would like to dive into revival type design, and hence a unique addition to the field of type design education."
