Lettres de Toulouse. Toulouse Letters

Following a series of invitations made since 2005 in the field of type design at the institut supérieur des arts de Toulouse / isdaT (formerly known as the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Toulouse), this book retraces the collective experiments undertaken in the Graphic Design option through workshops, exhibitions, lectures, semester courses and projects in partneship with the City of Toulouse. By way of interviews and essays proposed by the different guest type designers (Alejandro Lo Celso, Frederik Berlaen, Thomas Huot-Marchand, Hans-Jürg Hunziker) and the teacher coordinating the programme (François Chastanet), its subject is about sharing different pedagogical approaches to drawing letterforms at the beginning of the 21st century; it also questions the deeply paradoxical nature of this specific drawing practice, somewhere between a quest for identity and invisibility, and between the visual tone of a text and self-effacement towards usage.
