The Crystal Goblet is an essay on typography written by a conservative typographer named Beatrice Warde. Warde advocates for the use of clear, transparent typography and largely ignores the designers role in shaping content. I disagree with Warde's views and layered counterarguments within the text of The Crystal Goblet by printing on multiple sheets of semi-transparent tissue.
Warde's text is set in a version of Bodoni and the subversions are overprinted in pink Fedra Sans. Looking at the pages with a lightbox reveals the words lying underneath the surface.
