Les femmes dans la typographie

Type design plays a fundamental role in visual communication: it is crucial to the textual representation of languages to afford literacies to global communities. Histories to date have largely overlooked type design’s importance, and concomitantly the key contributors to the type-design and manufacturing processes that developed in the twentieth century. Women were often central to this development, particularly in Britain within the major type-manufacturing companies of Monotype and Linotype.
