File text/texmacs Development of pan-CJK fonts
by Jürgen Willrodt published Dec 20, 2010 last modified Aug 26, 2015 11:39 PM — filed under: , ,
By Jürgen Willrodt. The development of fonts which are usable and acceptable in different countries using CJK ideograms in Asia requires the usage of multiple locale glyph variants for different countries. We discuss the technical requirements for such a font, the different options for implementation and the production process using the Ikarus font production system. We show as an example the integration of different CJK locales into our Nimbus Global font family. From the 2012 ATypI conference in Hong Kong.

File Black and white in Indian typography
by D. Udaya Kumar published Dec 20, 2010 last modified Aug 26, 2015 11:39 PM — filed under: , , ,
By D. Udaya Kumar. India is a diverse country with multiple scripts, Tamil and Sanskrit being the earliest among them. The ancient script, Brāhmī is the root of all Indian scripts. The script is also the parent to several other major script families of Central and Southeast Asia. Each of these Indian scripts evolved on its own course over centuries. The medium and tools used for writing played an important role in the evolution process. The palm leaf manuscripts were one of the major mediums used for written communication during the early periods. Their writing system and calligraphy were unlike the Far Eastern and Western calligraphic cultures. The concept of black and white was no concern for the calligrapher. In the majority of manuscripts the content was more important than the aesthetics of lettering or composition. On the other hand the present scripts have its roots from the unique writing system and medium. The scripts that has evolved with such culture and written practices reflected the same in the contemporary typography. Similar to the manuscript calligraphy the present typography that is seen all around has no concerns for the black and white. This raises the several important questions such as, is it important to balance the black and white in typography? Does the concept of black and white really matters in typography of Indian scripts? This paper primarily aims at understanding the concept of black and white in Indian typography especially in Tamil script. It discusses the calligraphy on palm leaf manuscript, influence of the medium and its writing system on letterforms. It also explores the issues related to aesthetics in Indian language typography in comparison to Western typography. From the ATypI 2012 conference in Hong Kong.

File object code RE-TRANS-formation of Chinese typography
by Jackson Choi published Dec 20, 2010 last modified Aug 26, 2015 11:39 PM — filed under: , , ,
This paper aims to present our approaches of teaching Chinese typography at Hong Kong Design Institute that blend Chinese culture with modern context. The unique historic and cultural background of Hong Kong favoured the flourish of Western culture and values, which in some way weaken our link with Chinese culture. Language, as a basic reflection of cultural heritage in daily utilization, is a perfect platform to inject Chinese culture and tradition back to the heart of our young generation.
