(Foreword) 'Semantic typography, with a foreword by Shutaro Mukai, presents a project Baumann & Baumann carried out together with eighty students over eighty hours at Musashino Art University Tokyo. Countless word-pictures and pictorial words were created. The assumption arose that, in Japan, pictorial writing and thus visual thinking, leads to an a-mazing variety of unusual, play-ful, matter-of-fact, impressive, and sometimes surprisingly simple solutions when working with our Latin letters.'
