This book is the result of a semester course in typography at IADE in Lisbon.
It contains 9 exercises with different design challenges. Starting with calligraphy in the first chapter,
I also explored the limit of readability, made patterns out of letters and designed my own monogram,
to name but a few of the exercises I had to deal with. The ninth and last exercise was to create my own alphabet, which consists of course of punctuation marks fitting to the topic.
What unites all of this exercises is the experimental approach. At the end of the course I combined all my results, added a fitting quote to each of the chapters and that's how this wonderful book came into being!
