This book examines, by its own typography as well as text, how the form of the book contributes to the production of meaning. “Diagrammatic Writing is a poetic demonstration of the capacity of format to produce meaning. The articulation of the codex, as a space of semantically generative relations, has rarely (if ever) been subject to so highly focused and detailed a study. The text and graphical presentation are fully integrated, co-dependent, and mutually self-reflexive” (Onomatopee website).
The design of this Korean edition attempts to “translate” the form of the original book as well as its content. Co-designed by its translator, the text evidently shows how the verbal translation has been affected by the need to find matching visual arrangements.
