NOTES ON THE TYPE, TIME, LETTERS and SPIRITS by Dexter Sinister

120 x 190 mm, 64 pages, black and white printing, perfect bound, 2017

Three interconnected palimpsest essays recount (1) the backstory of a “meta” font recently updated by Dexter Sinister and used to typeset the Contemporary Condition book series, (2) a broad history of the rationalization of letterforms that considers the same typeface from “a higher point of disinterest,” and (3) a pending proposal for a sundial designed to operate in parallel physical and digital realms. Along the way they contemplate the ambiguous nature of our shared idea of *time* itself.
