David Hebrew by Shani Avni
"Ismar David initiated the design of his comprehensive Hebrew typeface family in Jerusalem, in the 1930s. It is considered to be the first Hebrew multi-style family and consists of nine variations that show many innovative features that were never seen in earlier designs. Starting with a historical overview of the typographic environment in the state of Israel around the time it is was declared in 1948, this dissertation looks into the means of design and production of printed matter needed for the construction of a new nation. It then introduces David's life story in order to provide the background and context for his creation. Following the circumstances that led to the typeface design and production, this dissertation examines the typefaces design itself and studies the issues David has written about such as the historic references and the production technology. Using mostly material from David's archives, this study conducts a visual analysis of all members of the David Hebrew typeface family. The visual analysis provides an understadning of the relationship between the styles and weights of the family and isolates the factors that show the systematic thinking Ismar David applied to his design. By doing this, the dissertation looks to inform Hebrew typeface designers of David's approach and work process, in hope of contributing to future Hebrew type design challenges."--Abstract.

Language Culture Type by John D. (ed.). Berry
Language Culture Type grew out of the first international type-design competition, the 2001 bukva: raz!, whose goal was to promote global cultural pluralism, interaction, and diversity in typographic communications. The book lavishly presents the winning entries, along with information about each typeface, its language, and its designer. A series of essays gives context for the interplay of types and languages in the world today -- including the attempt to mesh all existing scripts into a single digital encoding system called Unicode. It also delves into the specific issues around developing typefaces for the many linguistic cultures in the world, from the various Cyrillic letterforms to Vietnam's ancient ideographic script.
