Facing the World: Type Design in Global Perspective is a guided tour to more than five centuries of type design beyond the Latin alphabet. On display are rare books and manuscripts drawn from the Stanford Libraries collections, along with rare items on loan from participating institutions and private collections. From the earliest specimens of Greek movable type to an exquisite 16th-century polyglot Bible, and from Arabic lithography and a Hebrew typewriter to some of the earliest Chinese computer fonts, this exhibition speaks to the linguist, designer, technologist, and world traveler in us all.
