Publié le 28 Juin 2012
Depuis le milieu du 19° siècle, beaucoup de Japonais ressentent un réel intérêt pour les cultures, sociétés et économies américaines et européennes. Beaucoup ont souhaité devenir semblables aux pays très développés de l'Ouest. Les collectionneurs japonais et les universitaires lisent et collectionnent des livres occidentaux importants depuis déjà une centaine d'années, et plus particulièrement depuis ces cinquante dernières années. La plupart des nations asiatiques, contrairement au Japon, ont été méfiantes vis-à-vis des approches américaines et européennes. Beaucoup ont craint de "s'européaniser': préférant conserver leurs propres cultures et valeurs, en dépit de leur forte attirance pour les méthodes économiques occidentales.

Celebrating Beatrice Warde

After a short hiatus, we're back on the occasion of typographical scholar Beatrice Warde's birthday. Born on September 20th, 1900, Warde lived during a renaissance in American and British graphic design and was a woman who made a name for herself in the then predominately male world of typography.
