PostScript

Since the mid-1980s, technological developments such as the PostScript language have allowed everyday graphic designers to develop their own fonts, which they could then distribute on their own, alongside the established type foundries. This book covers the diverse history of type design during the PostScript era in German-speaking countries. Over 70 fonts are described, ranging from revised classics and vernacular interpretations to new experimental solutions for typographic communications. Accompanying this excellent visual selection are texts by the editors and essays from Robin Kinross and Walter Pamminger. This book is the companion to an exhibition that was organized by the Künstlerhaus museum in Vienna in 2002. All text is in German.
