In this second edition the refereed submissions discuss a range of approaches that create type designs to reinterpret letterforms.  Linguistic function is challenged by a process where text loses its narrative role and becomes a texture of information; onscreen typography within the context of film and video; digital interface designed to ‘write images’ in a screen-based environment; artists’ books and the alphabet; avant-garde European philosophy and experimental typography; a revisit of Walter Benjamin’s essay, The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (1936), within the context of contemporary Letterpress typography and finally, the examination of the textured intersection of typography, fashion and body in kinetic text.
