Typografische Visualisierung von Raymond Queneaus „Stilübungen“

Back Download

This project is based on the classification of rhetorical figures according to expansion, omission, substitution, transposition and gemination. For each of these five modification categories a font was created which illustrates the intrusions into language. These fonts were developed on the basis of micro-typographic changes to the Antiqua Didot font. The novel “Exercises in Style” by Raymond Queneau, which tells the story of an everyday incident in 99 variations, served as a draft for the application of this typographic concept.
