  5. Anne Quito:

    The gist of the story was : Maybe we've graduated from so-called' chop-suey fonts,' which originated in the early 19th century right as a pastiche of an unknown land, now we've arrived at a very kind of globalized state. We know each other, we know the Chinese as traditional but also modern, we have a more nuanced view of the world. So perhaps we can retire these fonts. Or maybe we can use them in conjunction with other typefaces.
