So I just readThe Crystal Goblet by Beatrice Warde.
Look it up Designers and READ it! HERE
Beatrice metaphorically presents her argument for how type should be utalized. She compares type to the chalice used when drinking a fine wine. Shall the goblet be made of crystal, revealing its color, and allowing the taster to truly taste. Or, does one choose an ornate victorian gold goblet to parade their drinking of fine wine in front of others. What function does the chalice truly serve.
I believe there is a time an place for both. I strive to fall somewhere in-between the fine artist drinking from the diamond entrusted, gold filigree, ornate, life of the party goblet, but also to be the thinker, admiring the texture, the age, the story and the smallest of flavors to the wine. I wish to feel and think.
I leave you with a final thought from The Crystal Goblet.
