Whatever Next: A Discourse on Typography

Last year I wrote a short essay entitled “Rules for Researching” for Gunnlaugur SE Briem to include in The Briem Report: Letterforms 2012. It will soon be available for free download at his website operina.com. Meanwhile, it has been published earlier this month in Whatever Next: A Discourse on Typography, a book jointly sponsored by This Is Art and the Camberwell Press, both located in London. The essay is a quick guide to doing research for those not trained academically and for those not used to doing research offline. It provides some insight into the methods I use in preparing the detailed material posted on Blue Pencil.
