Hebrew Type Design Research

A comprehensive research on the work of the late Zvi Narkiss, the most significant Hebrew type designer in the 20th century.

Hebrew Type Design Research Specimen

Dear Members and friends! A month and a half ago I uploaded to "Headsart" (Mass funding) the research i'm writing, in order to raise the budget for launching and financing the project.

The research will contain spectacular visual materials which are part of the impressive archive Narkiss created. This archive is also the basis of my research.

This research is important and undoubtedly significant to students of typography, lecturers and design professionals. Also to the general public viewing the Hebrew language and typography manifested so beautifully in Hebrew type faces developed in course of the 20th century and today.

The research which will be published as book once it's finalized, will contain a broad range of materials, shown for the first time. These images are fascinating more so in the relevant historical, cultural, social, technological and design contexts as will be presented in the text and articles in the book.

If you wish to take part in this unique project, and help make it happen, you are warmly invited to join!

Please find attached the link to my project. Thank you all very much!
