《活版印刷赋》也是版式设计艺术家书项目的文字内容部分。它是我在芝加哥艺术学院攻读硕士学位期间真正意义上做的第一本书。在研究生学习的最后一学期,我选了 “凸版印刷—书籍研究” 课并在此用同一内容完成了我在学期间的最后一个项目。

层叠的折手组成了印刷与版式发展与大事纪的时间线。每一个折手都是对当时版式设计的追忆与复刻。它们分别为:
1. 拥有花饰首字母的安色尔体
2. 安色尔体(400–1400,中世纪)
3. 古腾堡圣经(1400–1600,文艺复兴)
4. 古罗马体(1400–1600,文艺复兴;1500–1600,风格主义;1600–1700,巴洛克)
5. 过渡罗马体(1700–1800,新古典主义;1700–1900,浪漫主义)
6. 现在罗马体(1700–1800,新古典主义;1700–1900,浪漫主义)
7. 粗衬线体/埃及风格体(1700–1900,浪漫主义;1800–1900,现实主义)
8. 非衬线体(1700–1900,浪漫主义;1800–1900,现实主义)
9. 工艺美术运动(1700–1900,浪漫主义;1800–1900,现实主义;1900–2000,几何现代主义、抒情现代主义、后现代主义)
10. 参考书目
11. 版权说明页

The poem “Ode to Typography” is the content of the Typographic Artist’s Book project, the first book I ever designed during my graduate study in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In the last semester, I was taking letterpress bookworks class and I used the same content as my graduate finale.

The stacked spreads compose the timeline of the development and facts about printing and typography. Each one is a reminiscence sharing the same typographic and layout style. They are:
1. Uncial with Puzzled Initial;
2. Uncial Script, (400–1400, Medieval Period);
3. the Gutenberg Bible, (1400-1600, Renaissance);
4. Old Style Roman, (1400–1600, Renaissance; 1500–1600, Mannerist; 1600–1700, Baroque);
5. Transitional Roman, (1700–1800, Neoclassical; 1700–1900, Romantic);
6. Modern Roman, (1700–1800, Neoclassical; 1700–1900, Romantic);
7. Slab Serif/Egyptian, (1700–1900, Romantic; 1800–1900, Realist);
8. San Serif, (1700–1900, Romantic; 1800–1900, Realist);
9. Arts and Crafts Movement, (1700–1900, Romantic; 1800–1900, Realist; 1900–2000, Geometric Modenist, Lyrical Modernist, Post Modernist);
10. Bibliography; 
11. Colophon.
