ECAL: Typeface as Program

Edited by François Rappo. Text by Peter Bilak, Jürg Lehni, Erik Spiekermann.

This publication continues the ECAL design series that was inaugurated with ECAL Graphic Design and ECAL Typography. Asking whether a computer program could be assigned the routine tasks of letter design, and whether novel forms might evolve through the manipulation of fonts' algorithmic data, the book details the results of several workshops aimed at extending the scope of the typographic game.

FROM THE BOOK
"Like many disciplines dependent on technology for execution or production, type design has undergone a series of fundamental revolutions and transitions in the past century. Driven by technological advance, this process has completely changed the way people work with type, to the point where someone employed in the field had to adapt to a significantly changing situation many times throughout a career. The change went from 19th-century hot metal typesetting with its very complex and expensive mechanized equipment invented by Monotype and Linotype, through a period of opto-mechanical photocomposition system, in which printing with cast letter forms was replaced with esxposure of optical outlines on spinning disks of glass onto light-sensitive paper, to the digital simulation of similar processes, formulated in computer programs and executed first by huge room-sized installations and later by affordable home computers." --Excerpted from Francois Rappo's Introduction.
