ficciones typografika

Just realized that I missed the ten year anniversary of these original typographic fictions I created (Ficciones Typografika). This experiment with an old sheet of Letraset (Micrograma) has led to many years of new applications by my type students, both beginning and advanced.

Each unit is scaled from 24"x36", so it is an effective way to work both at micro and macro scale at the same time. I remember that joyous evening well, as you may tell by the effusiveness of the caption.


Advanced Typography (Central Michigan University, 2014). I am forever grateful to Jonathon Russell and his Advanced Typography class at Central Michigan University for sharing a copy of this book. The project was apparently inspired by Ficciones Typografika and some of the techniques I have developed over the years for teaching both beginning and advanced typography students. Printed on a Risograph GR 3750 and hand-stitched by Jonathon and his students. Many thanks again to all involved.
