Typography Papers 9 opens with a beautifully illustrated article by type designer Gerard Unger on "Romanesque" letters, followed by a new installment of Eric Kindel's ground-breaking history of stencil letters. Maurice Goldner contributes the first history of an early twentieth-century German typefounder, Bruder Butter. Paul Luna discusses the role of pictures in dictionaries. William Berkson and Peter Enneson propose a new view of readability of text. Titus Nemeth describes a new form of Arabic type for metal composition. Together, this international lineup of contributors shows the remarkable variety and vitality of typography now.
