A bit bored by reading too much extremely accurate history book about type design and/or type theory, I was wondering if you knew fiction (even science-fiction) texts that talk about typefaces or which involve letters and theirs shapes as the main theme. I'm sure that writers like Borges, K.Dick may have written stories involving type but it's not always easy to find such a precise theme in theirs huge amount of texts. I'm not only interested in long texts, but also short ones like this one
from Fred Smeijers). I'm looking for texts talking about a fictive past, or predictive future (I saw that future in typography had a thread on the forum here
, but it's only two pages long.) centered on latin type (because if we start including imaginary languages and invented writing systems, it's not gonna be really "type-centered" anymore).
I'm also interested if you knew real type project reflecting some alternate history/weird but interesting shapes.
I hope my questions are understandable (english is not my native language), and thanks in advance for your answers !
