Silver Ginga book cloth over boards with images printed in blue, binding is accordion-fold so that the book can be stretched out to take in the entire text at once. Fine. Naked Faces explores the emotional impact of typefaces, taking its cue from Robert Bringhurst's classification of types based on social and artistic movements from the time period in which the types first appeared. The class looked at typefaces from Bringhurst's perspective, listen to music and looked at artworks from the respective time periods. The myriad tiny details that make up a letter-form have emotional impact on the entire type-face. Highlighting those rising emotions became the focus of the book. Students selected digital typefaces from Bringhurst's classification list to investigate but used the metal typefaces available at the Scripps College Press for the emotional descriptions. Colors of forest green, teal, electric blue and purple were used for the emotive type passages.
