The B-42: the origins of the graphical industry

Friday 30 October, 10:00 (40 minutes)

Luz Rangel, ,

We will show that the graphical-operational solution that made possible the transition from handwriting to print was carried out through a design project that arose from the process of minting of coins. We will also see that it can be proved, using quantitative methods, the existence of a multiple character set in the preparation of the 42-line Bible. Finally, we will present a digital catalogue of the types in the Bible that we have developed by means of digitalization, vectorialization and compositional simulation of characters and whose final result will be a free software product.
