PublisherThe Serving Library2016
This issue is both *in* and *about* COLOR. Starting with ISSUE #10, we have reduced our format and we are printing in all of the available inks. The issue was published in time to inaugurate (finally!) our first physical space for The Serving Library in a storefront on the north side of the majestic India Buildings block in the heart of Liverpool’s once-colorful mercantile district. Bulletins around the edges of color come courtesy Lucas Benjamin on a green screen, Stuart Bertolotti-Bailey on ephemera, Umberto Eco on conditioning, Emily Gephart on a poetry hoax, James Langdon on kitchen cabinetry, Tamara Shopsin on swimming ...
PublisherThe Serving Library2012
  This issue doubles as a catalog-of-sorts to Ecstatic Alphabets/Heaps of Language, a group exhibition curated by Laura Hoptman at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, from May 6 to August 27, 2012. It is a *pseudo*-catalog in the sense that, other than a section of images at the back, it bears no direct relation to the works in the exhibition. Instead, the bulletins extend in different directions from the same title, and could be collectively summarized as preoccupied with the more social aspects of Typography. In this way we hope to throw some *glancing* light on the exhibition. For ...

PublisherMicrosoft2017
In late April, the Emirate of Dubai announced the release of its eponymous typeface, designed in conjunction with Microsoft and Monotype, which is both openly downloadable and bundled with Microsoft Office. A strikingly generic sans-serif built for some 23 languages, the typeface is designed to be easily read on any screen, at any size. It is marketed (in the dramatic language of too-serious PR campaigns) as simultaneously urban, global, ancient and modern: it aims to synthesize Dubai’s architectural futurism with heritage characters both Latin and Arabic. Like its namesake, the Dubai font wants to be anything for everyone — the ...

G.B. JONES is an artist, filmmaker, and musician with a bone to pick. In the early 80s Jones co-founded the post-punk proto-riot grrrl band Fifth Column and in 1985 started publishing the queer punk zine J.D.s with co-conspirator Bruce LaBruce out of their rundown apartment in downtown Toronto. The zine’s inaugural issue featured the debut of her legendary Tom Girls series. Her drawings continue to be exhibited worldwide. Jones’ “no-budget” films often depict the hijinks of bad-mannered girl gangs, homo hustlers, and anarchist mischief-makers. This font is based on the title sequence of her 2008 film The Lollipop Generation. Jones’ matter-of-fact ...

In Between is a typeface created from video animations of a stroke font’s letters. These videos capture the letters of the English alphabet transforming into each other in a consecutive manner. Each form of the In Between typeface is taken from the exact middle point of this translation between consecutive letters. In Between asks several questions: Although it is classified as a typeface, if the glyphs are pending letters, would this not disqualify In Between as a typeface? Are these letters readable? If so, how do they sound like? Or, are they pure silence? How would one even type these ...

MARTIN WONG (American, 1946-1999) painted the world in bricks, sweat, and sign language. He moved to New York City in 1978 and his work often depicted the urban blight of that time while being singularly saturated with deeply humanist joy. Wong was an “outsider among outsiders”: as a gay Chino-Latino painter, he sidestepped the detached conceptualism of many of his contemporaries in favor of social realist tributes to the gritty ecstasy of city life, homoerotics of prison and firemen, the voyeuristic nature of language, and queer black and brown love. Wong died from AIDS-related causes while in the care of ...
