Typography, Automation, and the Division of Labor: A Brief History

Info

"Typography was born in the mass-production mechanism of the printing press. It has thus always been implicated in automation-and, thereby, in the distinctly modern dynamics of overwork, underemployment, and runaway production." In this compact illustrated essay, J. Dakota Brown reinterprets the history of graphic design by situating it in the history of capitalism.
