Aberrations and aperture shape cause various bokeh effects. Some enjoy the pleasing softness, while others find it distracting.

Phototypesetting is a method of setting type, that uses a photographic process to generate columns of type on a scroll of photographic paper. The once innovative process that afforded unforseen freedom of typographic expression with a sliding scale of magnification, was rendered obsolete with the popularity of the personal computer and desktop publishing software.
Bookish Italic
The optical equipment involved in the process had to be precisely tuned in order to produce sharp images. Failiure to keep the lenses clean or perfectly focused might cause smudges or blurring of the rendered text. The light sensitive film also required appropriate exposure, which was critical for the perceived weight of the final result. Misuse or poor handling could cause gradial variation along the page of text.

Niklas Ekholm

2013

Bookish is a typeface for the indulgent reader of txts. Like a well-tuned piano, these letters are traditionally crafted and reproduced with precision. Artefacts from each step of the process are recorded faithfully: The calligraphic brush gives a classic structure that is easy to read and the phototypesetting device can scale the letters to precisely the size necessary. Only someone must have been drunk while calibrating the phototypesetting machine — these shapes as are right as purple rain.
