Beskrivning

Hyphen Press, London. 1996. First edition. 191 pages. Sewn & flapped paperback. Two-colour pictures. Two minor tears to top and bottom of spine, otherwise as new.
”Counterpunch” is packed with ideas. It is both an investigation into the technics of making metal type by hand, and a consideration of present questions in type design. The discussion takes in the fundamentals of designing and making letters, so that the book can be read as a guide to type and font construction in any medium. Lively, pointed drawings and photographs complement an equally fresh text.
“This book provides a close-up view of the work of the sixteenth-century French and Flemish punchcutters. /…/ ‘Counterpunch’ shows that the old processes echo on, giving lessons for contemporary practice.”
“A book that moves in towards an investigation into the technics of making metal type by hand, and then out towards a discussion of designing digital type now. In the course of the discussion, Smeijers takes in the fundamentals of designing and making letters, so that he can be read as a guide to type and font construction in any medium. Lively, pointed drawings and photographs complement an equally fresh text.”
