This issue of Bulletins of the Serving Library doubles as a catalog of sorts to “Ecstatic Alphabets/Heaps of Language,” a group exhibition curated by Laura Hoptman at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, from May 6 to August 27, 2012. It is a *pseudo*-catalog in the sense that, other than a section of images at the back, it bears no direct relation to the works in the exhibition. Instead, the bulletins extend in different directions from the same title, and could be collectively summarized as preoccupied with the more social aspects of Typography.
Bulletins of The Serving Library is an eclectic cultural journal of primarily newly commissioned writing produced biannually in distinct online and print formats. Each new issue of Bulletins is conceived as a bundle of reading material organized around a theme for the ongoing self-education of an international audience of designers, artists, writers, and researchers whose interests span many disciplines.
