Gotico-Antiqua, proto-roman, hybrid. 15th-century types between gothic and romanENSAD/ANRT, Poem, les presses du réel
Conference papers & exhibition catalogue, edited & designed by Jérôme Knebusch. Co-publication ENSAD Nancy, ANRT, Poem, les presses du réel, 2021.
The book brings together researchers from the fields of typography, palaeography and incunabula studies, with a particular focus on type and letterforms. The relatively understudied period – after Gutenberg and before the consolidation of Jenson’s model – extends from the earliest traces of ‘humanistic’ tendencies to ‘pure’ roman type, including many cases of uncertain or experimental design, voluntary hybridisation and proto- or archaic roman.
