Salome Schmuki studied graphic design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, where she began collecting research material about dyslexia and readability. Interested in different strains of dyslexia and how it occurs in various languages and writing systems, she approaches the topic from the perspective of a designer and a reader. This thick yet clearly legible and impeccably designed book gathers the results of Schmuki’s inquiry, a project based on her typographic practice combined with scientific research. Seeking a dialogue with readers of different types, she investigates many aspects of the printed word, revealing its complex, challenging and arbitrary nature.
