Abstract

This essay and self-reflective case study focuses on the impact of the typeface in which written texts are set. It argues for the potentials that can be realized from foregrounding typeface in the creative process through typographic-poetic collaborations. By selecting poems to suit typefaces or creating poems for typefaces, poetry can benefit creatively from a typeface’s materiality.
