History of Typography...

While the typographer's art is rooted in the growing body of existing forms, the broader social role of printed letters is to preserve the evidence of civilixation in a permanent and tangible form. While some of the most ambitious approuches to graphic design in the twentieth century have sought to reject old traditions in pursuit of originality, typographic forms are always subject to appropriation and reuse-a new typeface quickly enters the public realm, where its meaning is open to change.
