This publication is devoted to the Japanese writing system, its history, structure and richness of visual expression. Comparisons of the Japanese script to Latin letters are there to support the reader. More than hundred typographic designs of the past to the present – accompanied by analytical descriptions in text and visuals – demonstrate an insight into the opportunities of this hybrid system, beyond a beautiful façade to the deeper semantic layer.
