January 12, 2019 - March 16, 2019
Among the design elements of typography is “typographic composition”: composition that includes the space in which lettering is arranged and configured on a page. “Typographic Composition” is also the title chosen by Yoshihisa Shirai, who remains active primarily in book design and editorial design, for his exhibition. The exhibition will be out of the ordinary: in addition to showing many of Shirai’s book designs of great beauty, the cor
e of the works on display will consist of two-page spreads featuring black lettering.
