Oded Ezer: The Typographer s Guide to the Galaxy presents the typographic experiments and experimental typography of visionary artist and designer Oded Ezer for the first time.
A pioneer in the field, Ezer is one of the most influential designers today, who is reinventing the art of typography. Based in Tel Aviv, Ezer has an almost scientific approach to type design in which he explores the anatomy of letters and alphabets. His Hebrew and Latin characters and alphabets are influenced by calligraphy and integrate elements that are not typical for font design, such as ornamental and organic shapes that resemble creatures. The book introduces his type art and hybrid typo creatures, including projects from his Biotypography series. Here, Ezer applies biological systems and organic livings to create and modify type into hybrid type insects and animals as well as cloned sperm creatures that are half sperm, half human with typographic information implanted in their DNA with Typosperma, the latter of which has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Further experiments such as his Tortured Letters series, Typoplastic Surgeries and Typo Mythologies are included. In addition to these projects, this monograph also documents elegant and concise logo designs that Oded Ezer has created for international brands and institutions, as well as his collection of font designs.
The book also highlights the designer's current work including a collection of photographs of his lab experiments in the studio, exhibition installations, sketches and illustrations along with detailed texts about each of his projects. With two forewords by Paola Antonelli, Curator of the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA, New York and renowned designer, illustrator and typographer Marian Bantjes, this publication showcases a remarkable portfolio of work and offers a rare insight into Ezer's design process.
