“The written word as an art form has taken many shapes throughout its development in society, some functional and some aesthetic. In fact, Phoenician letterforms were of the first symbols to make the jump from representation to abstraction. It would take an additional 3000 years for modern art to make this jump. At its root the written word and the visual arts share the same ancestry. Communication was, and is still, the link between the ancestral form and their present functions.”
