Handy Documents for Typographers
Three charts to help you find those hidden character on you Mac or PC.
Non-Latin Scripts and Diacritics
Even if you are not a type designer, it is good to know how they should look when you are designing for another language. This is a great Latin diacritic site by Filip Blažek from Typo.cz and DesignIQ.eu.
This historical document was brought to my attention by Steven Heller's The Daily Heller column over at ImPrint.
Steven Hellers Introduction:
Type designs, like most intellectual property, are subject to pirating. Alter a nuance, change a counter, give the type a slightly different name, and voila!—a new face on an old body. In 1966, the typographer, printer, and historian of printing and type John Dreyfus (1918–2002) wrote a report titled The Association Typographique Internationale and the International Protection of Type Designs. The Association Tyographique Internationale, or ATypI, was always at the forefront of this sticky issue. The reason for this report, Dreyfus noted, was because “At present, a new type design can be copied cheaply by photography and can be ready for sale within a matter of days.” And this before the age of digitization.
