Unjustified Texts

Robin Kinross, Unjustified Texts: Perspectives on Typography, Korean edition, translated by Choi Sung Min (Seoul: Workroom Press, 2018). Offset printing, paperback binding, page size 135 x 210 mm, 472 pp.

The cover design illustrates the principle of unjustified text setting. For headings, Ahn Sang-soo-che is used for its historical significance as the first geometric, non-square, thus “unjustified,” Korean typeface. The figures and some of the punctuations are modified to be more consistent with the ideas behind the Korean characters (see the details). The text typography is restrained as the original English edition.
