Manifeste pour la collaboration/Manifeste contre le graphiste homme-orchestre (2006)












This book is the result of a few meetings and discussions between
five people. A great experience that showed us how important it is to use
the collective energy in all kind of work and not to think that we're good enough
to do everything alone.

Oded Ezer, The Typosperma Project


Created by Oded Ezer, Typosperma is the second experimental typo project in his 'Biotypography' series.
As a paraphrase on the biotechnology definition, 'Biotypography' is a term that refers to any typographical application that uses biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to create or modify typographical phenomena. The main idea of the 'Typosperma' project was to create some sort of new transgenic creatures, half (human) sperm, half letter. These imaginary creatures are cloned sperms, that typographic information has been implanted into their DNA.
