Tibetan Typeforms - An Historical And Visual Analysis Of Tibetan Typefaces
|Author||A.j. De Baerdemaeker|
‘Tibetan Typeforms’ presents in-depth research regarding the origin, development, and typographical function of letter types in Tibetan writing, from their beginnings in 1738 to the present. Besides introducing the characteristics of Tibetan script and the chronological evolution of letter design and typographic techniques, it also offers a comparative visual and analytical investigation of the manufacture of multilingual typesets and their deployment. Multiple solutions for these typographical complexities are identified, including the placement of diacritical marks, the vertical composition of syllable ligatures, and the many glyphs to be designed.
