Typography from linguistic function to art

Chung Ah-young / Korea Times
Typography has evolved with the development of civilization. Korea, Japan and China have their own writing systems — hangeul (the Korean alphabet), kana (Japanese script) and Chinese characters respectively — but they share Chinese characters as a fundamental means of their written expression. Even before the term “typography” was created, a profound, enriching and flourishing culture of the letters have long existed.
