“The typographic contribution to language: Towards a model of typographic genres and their underlying structures. Unpublished PhD thesis, Department of Typography and Graphic Communication, University of Reading, August 1987… This thesis presents a model which accounts for variations in typographic form in terms of four underlying sources of structure. The first three relate to the three parts of the writer-text-reader relationship: topic structure, representing the expressive intentions of the writer; artefact structure, resulting from the physical constraints of the medium; and access structure, anticipating the needs of the self-organized reader.” Thanks InfoDesign.
