The Word Made Flesh / Drucker, Johanna., 1989

 Item
Identifier: CC-16305-16653
Scope and Contents The first five pages feature a large heavy black printed "T" surrounded by or incorporated with letters or parts of words printed in black. The large letter completes the word. This is followed by pages that use one large black printed letter on subsequent pages to spell out the title of the book. In turn, these letters are surrounded by or incorporate letters or words printed in black or red ink. The smaller black letters have varied typefaces and dimensions while the red letters are printed with the same uppercase typeface. The typography is a modern day version of the style used by Ilia Zdanevich when in lived in Tiflis, Russia in the teens and twenties. In his books of that time, he printed two letters in a vertical row adjacent to one larger letter repetitively to indicate multiple words. Drucker has written a biography on Iliazd as Zdanevich was known when he migrated to Paris and appears to have been influenced by this distinctive typography. -- Source of annotation: Marvin...
