Might I broaden the question of languages and their uses to scripts and
I know that a lot of work has been done on the development of
scripts and fonts in the early days of printing, but has anyone covered
associations such as why Italian vernacular texts tend to be printed in
italics; more formal ones in Roman, etc.?
Writing books give a wide variety of fonts - let alone alphabets. Does
know whether anyone has done any work on the possible associations of
suitability these may have had?
