Hanzi Graphy

————a typographic translation between Latin letters and Chinese characters

Book Information

Hanzi graphy is a sincere and in-depth research into both traditional Chinese and Latin type systems — Takagi sees the uniqueness of both systems and presents an extraordinarily accessible and ground-breaking visual formula to connect the two.

The development of the Latin and Chinese writing systems cover an intriguing spectrum of cultures, sociologies and histories, which Hanzi graphy illustrates with unconventional visual references.
