A practice-based research project exploring the comparative relationships between typeface design and the monumental. Rather than concluding that a typeface is simply a vehicle, where the leading measure is based soley on transparency and the seamless conveyance of information, this book instead positions the typeface as a vessel—proposing that it may serve as a form of monument all on its own.
In this first edition, a particular focus is placed on notions of monumentality within contemporary New Zealand society.
