"Ismar David initiated the design of his comprehensive Hebrew typeface family in Jerusalem, in the 1930s. It is considered to be the first Hebrew multi-style family and consists of nine variations that show many innovative features that were never seen in earlier designs. Starting with a historical overview of the typographic environment in the state of Israel around the time it is was declared in 1948, this dissertation looks into the means of design and production of printed matter needed for the construction of a new nation. It then introduces David's life story in order to provide the background and context for his creation. Following the circumstances that led to the typeface design and production, this dissertation examines the typefaces design itself and studies the issues David has written about such as the historic references and the production technology. Using mostly material from David's archives, this study conducts a visual analysis of all members of the David Hebrew typeface family. The visual analysis provides an understadning of the relationship between the styles and weights of the family and isolates the factors that show the systematic thinking Ismar David applied to his design. By doing this, the dissertation looks to inform Hebrew typeface designers of David's approach and work process, in hope of contributing to future Hebrew type design challenges."--Abstract.

Language Culture Type grew out of the first international type-design competition, the 2001 bukva: raz!, whose goal was to promote global cultural pluralism, interaction, and diversity in typographic communications. The book lavishly presents the winning entries, along with information about each typeface, its language, and its designer. A series of essays gives context for the interplay of types and languages in the world today -- including the attempt to mesh all existing scripts into a single digital encoding system called Unicode. It also delves into the specific issues around developing typefaces for the many linguistic cultures in the world, from the various Cyrillic letterforms to Vietnam's ancient ideographic script.

Dream Tonight of Peacock Tails marks the first in-depth examination of Pynchon’s debut novel, which was immediately recognized as a breakthrough masterpiece. The eight essays collected in the volume provide both scholars and avid readers with new and original insights into a too-often underestimated work that, probably even more than Gravity’s Rainbow, established Pynchon as one of the great masters of twentieth-century American literature. This book deliberately privileges a multidisciplinary and transnational approach, encompassing collaborations from a particularly international and diverse academic context. As such, this volume offers a multifaceted pattern of expanding investigation that tackles the novel’s apparently chaotic but meticulously organized structure by rereading it in the light of recent US and European history and economics, as well as by exploring its many real and imagined locations. Not only are the essays brought together here revelatory of Pynchon’s way of working, but they also tell us something about our own ways of approaching his fiction.
