Emotions and minimalism

Martin Majoor from the Netherlands managed to design 5 internationally acclaimed typefaces and talks about his philosophy. Sarah Hyndman examines how type can raise emotions, fascinating type illustrations are made by Sawdust and Michael Wörgötter carved an alphabet out of wood. 

These and many other fascinating projects can be found in novum 07.16 with a focus on typography.
