Illuminating Letters: Typography and Literary Interpretation
Paul C. Gutjahr, Megan Benton
Univ of Massachusetts Press, 2001 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 198 pages
What do we read when we read a text? The author's words, of course, but is that all? The prevailing publishing ethic has insisted that typography - the selection and arrangement of type and other visual elements on a page - should be an invisible, silent and deferential servant to the text it conveys.
