Critics have praised Gotham as blue collar, nostalgic yet “exquisitely contemporary,” and “simply self evident.”

Font | MORISAWA

by sbrothier
Without difficulty, Japanese people use a combination of four different types of character systems: kanji,hiragana, katakana, and the English alphabet.

Elements of Japanese culture have been embedded in these kanji characters through their forms and images. In addition,most kanji characters have two or more pronunciations and a variety of meanings.
