BOOK MACHINE (Paris) / Artist’s Typefaces

Lawrence Weiner, Ryan Gander and many other artists have drawn their original font characters as an extension of their work or have adopted existing fonts which have evolved into creative visual signatures. Displayed, these character fonts additionally write the history of modern and contemporary art.

17 artists were invited to present to the public their unique typefaces. These characters were printed as A3 posters and affixed upon panels designed by Mika Tajima for BOOK MACHINE (Paris).

This selection has additionally served as a starting point for onestar press' upcoming artist's typefaces publication.
