From Le-Be to Days & Nights, an academic essay

Yaronimus-Maximus's picture

Hello & Shalom Friends.
I have recently finished writing a new essay (written in Hebrew) about Hebrew typography. the work deals with two Hebrew 'fonts' designed 463 years apart from each other - the letters of Guillaume Le Be, designed in 1550, and a new font designed by Bezalel graduate Ben Nathan - "Days & Nights". the essay elaborates about their possible indirect connection through many hebrew letters and fonts that were designed between those times.

the essay (two files) is written in Hebrew and is available for free download for the benefit of everyone at the Hebrew Type Ministry.
