To continue discussions started on the Atypi list recently.
First, disconnect it -or keep it disconnected- from
affectations such as chirography and Modernism.
Work towards symbiosis, not mutual parasitism.
I had to run to the dictionary (as usual) to help me understand you post :)
I thought I knew what "chirography" means after I was introduced to it (and Bouma) by you and John few years ago. After the past days of discussions on Atypi list, I am at lost. Please redefine it so I can connect (or disconnect) to it. While you are their can you explain "symbiosis" and "parasitism". I told you I am a simple guy :)
Mr. Saad Abulhab, by any chance, did you attend :http://www.kitabat.org/kitabat_speakers.html
Unfortunately I did not. But I am familiar with it. Traveling from New York to Dubai is a big project. But I would love to attend other forums to discuss non traditional Arabic typography one of these days.
Saad, I'm getting ready for a trip, and will
try to once again define "Chirography" after
I get back. "Symbiosis" and "mutual parasitism"
however are standard terms in biology: the study
of living things (which to me can pertain to scripts).
BTW, we're STILL waiting for the competition results from Kitabat.

I thought it is already posted by Nadine on the Linotype site:
I wish she had showed text samples instead of isolated forms letters.
Oh! Thanks. She must be busy lately, since she had
promised to let us know when the results were out.
