Reading Form / Formen Lesen engages with the most fundamental human activities of reading, processing and communicating through visual information. Although written for the student of typography and graphic design, the text also bears relevance to designers from other fields by negotiating issues around the creation and design of meaning, and the responsibility and consciousness of the designer while doing so.
The ecletic but thematically interwoven choice of subjects invites the reader to develop their own philosophical and practical design questions, and to build up their own personal viewpoint and approach to the subject of design.
