Experience the world of typography, the art of printing, with this in-depth examination of the beautiful and meticulous work of Vidar Forsberg. A truly unique figure, Forsberg held utmost respect for the materials with which he worked. Rather than opting for the practical innovations of modern technology, he remained steadfast in his faith to the art of craftmanship, and especially to the knowledge and tradition behind typography that have taken generations to develop and refine. For him, typography was not only an empty form through which content was displayed. Rather, Forsberg attempted to convey content through his work. With magnificent illustrations of his books and prints, this gorgeous book, in both form and content, remains faithful to the subject at hand.
