Thank you to everyone who attended the online launch of Ming Romantic: Collected and Bound, 2nd Edition, the first publication commissioned through the NN Contemporary Art Branch of Library Stack. The video recording from the event is available for streaming on the Branch page.
In the event, the authors Caspar Lam and YuJune Park were in conversation with Chris Wu. The talked about the origins of the Ming Romantic typeface, their shared practices across the field of graphic design, and their wider research into Chinese typography. The discussion ranges widely, from bilingual design to the 2008 Beijing Olympics to using AI for imagining new forms of Chinese type.
