The Red Dot Shop invites you on a typographical journey through space and time: The book “Decodeunicode” shows treasure troves of scripts from all over the world.
Although the typical European characters based on the old Latin script now predominate in large parts of the globe, we should never forget that it is certainly not the only script in our world. From Cyrillic, Arabic, Asian or Hebrew scripts to runic, cuneiform or similar forms of writing, over the centuries, humans have created numerous writing systems to tell stories from their lives. Each of these scripts has its own appeal, and some are downright artistic in appearance. And an astonishingly large number of these scripts lie hidden somewhere on your keyboard! Do you want to know where? No problem: the book Decodeunicode by Johannes Berghausen and Siri Poarangan will accompany you on a very special typographical journey of discovery.
Treasure troves of scripts rediscovered
On almost 660 pages, Decodeunicode presents a total of 109,242 different characters and tells you where to find them. These include commonly used scripts as well as niche scripts and scripts with a fantastical appearance. The book will awaken your joy of scripts and encourage you to interact with them creatively. Discover new graphic design possibilities and global modes of expression that you never knew existed, or never knew how to make your keyboard produce them!
Submerge yourself in the world of scripts
Decodeunicode provides you with a fascinating encyclopaedia of scripts. It gives inspiration to designers and provides fitting “tools” for people working in global environments. It also offers many exciting hours of leafing through the book for anyone who is interested. This unique book was awarded the sought-after Red Dot by an international jury of experts in 2011. You can order Decodeunicode in the original online Red Dot Shop easily and securely.
