অ-IN THE QUEST OF BANGLA TYPOGRAPHY
The interest in typography amongst contemporary youth is the creative impulse that this work has emerged from. Technology has empowered them to an extent never observed before, however, they should not have endured academic barrenness in the field of Bengali typography. This book is not academic by nature. It consists of appreciation and interpretations gathered during several years of my search for the authentic representation of Bengali letterforms. This is my offering to a new generation of professionals who will advance this task with scholarly excellence.
