Glyph is a look into the representations of marks and glyphs in the Latin alphabet. From & to } to *, each mark has a brief explanation of its use and history, and a grid of its most interesting typographic variations. Who knew, for example, that the ampersand was once a letter in the alphabet?!
A strikingly designed and packaged book featuring hard-cut greyboard edges and liberal use of neon throughout, this book will be of great appeal to linguists, typographers and design-afficionados alike.
The short texts, written by Anna Davies, provide a brief overview of the symbols’ history – the dagger, obelus, underscore, caret and many more.—eyemagazine
We recommend this book to all whose eyes lies in the details ind the reading between the letters and lines and to those who love typography and design. —typostrate
Huge kudos to writer Anna Davies for her elegant, poetic writing that magically fits in-depth content into bite-sized chapters.There is something appealing to me about a beautiful little typography book that reads like a haiku.—jamieeby
