RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 765813057 LA In German and English parallel text. T1 Bright! : typography between illustration and art A1 Dufner, Karin,, Hulse, Michael,, Slanted,, YR 2012 SN 9783942597234 3942597233 AB Typography for many artists is loaded with creative potential. How much power of expression is contained in a letter, a word, or a sentence, when these entities, which are very communicative in character to begin with, are put on stage as images and objects? How does typographical information respond to its environment, to graphic complements, abstraction, or visual reversal? Under the curatorship of Slanted, this title presents a collection of pictorial typo-art, focusing on moving ahead. The differentiated spectrum, ranging from culturally rooted to revolutionary and innovative positions, does not leave out any sphere of interest: handpainted signs, tape-art, woodtype, letter objects, typographic sculptures, graffiti, tattoo art, generative performances, experimental type, and much more.
