My source of inspiration for this project was WWII as it is a subject I am most passionate about, as well as that I saw a lot of similarities between this event in history and typography. Like WWII, typography is made of numerous individual elements that when combined form he subject of typography, without which the subject becomes incomplete.
Following this theme, careful consideration was given to the choice of stock, type, colours used as well as the format and packaging of the book which was all executed in a manner that continued elements of its inspiration. This could be seen from the body copy of the glossary down to the overall packaging of the glossary which is similar to the methods incorporated for mail/post during the 1940s.
The book itself therefore follows the format of a series of letters, addressed to the respective type terms. In accordance with this, I named the glossary 'DEAR TYPE.'
