The Crystal Goblet
A response to text The Crystal Goblet, or Printing Should Be Invisible by Beatrice Warde
Warde equates effective typography to a wine connoisseur choosing a crystal goblet as a vessel that shows off the content. In an effort to take her message to the extremes, I used her listed type don'ts and distorted them in a scanner to render them effectively illegible. To emphasize the dichotomy, I overlaid this with a translucent copy of the legible "crystal goblet" text.
