The Journal of Typographic Research

The Journal of Typographic Research. These Journals include most of (if not all) publications from 1967 to 1970

The Journal of Typographic Research was published under this title for the first 4 years. The founder and first editor, Dr. Merald Wrolstad, understood that research and scholarly information was essential to the development of communication design and in particular to the development of typography in its support of reading and writing. Understanding the broader implications, he changed the title to Visible Language. In 1987, the journal passed to its second editor Sharon Poggenpohl, who has sought to strengthen the investigation of design 

We are extremely grateful to both Dawn and Kim Wakefield for the kind donation of the collection of their late father Richard Wakefield
