Christopher BurkeGerard Unger life in letters
“A richly illustrated, English-language publication on the oeuvre of Dutch type designer Gerard Unger, with a case study in the development of modern type design, which unfolds alongside the rapid technological changes that have transformed typesetting and publishing over the past fifty years.
Unger was a pioneer in the design of digital fonts and over time he developed an interest in space-saving newspaper typefaces and created his signature style, characterised by tense curves and dynamic rhythm. He was inspired by typefaces from the past, but was not a traditionalist. He stated that he was only capable of renewing historical models, not reviving them.”
