The Long Now Foundation Rosetta Project is an effort to preserve all languages that have a high likelihood of extinction over the period from 2000 to 2100. Its name is after the Rosetta Stone, a stele of Egyptian origin featuring a decree in three scripts. A comparison of its hieroglyphs with those on the Rosetta Stone catalysed the deciphering of the Egyptian writing system. In direct analogy to its namesake, a micro-etched nickel alloy Rosetta disc inscribed with 13,000 pages of text in 1200 languages is carried by the European Space Agency's Rosetta space probe. On 30 September 2016, the Rosetta spacecraft ended its mission by landing on the comet.

About the Korpus Grotesk

The ‘Korpus Grotesk’ is a continuation and translation of the typographic vocabulary of the serif ‘Korpus’ into a sans-serif font family. It is based on the same transfer philosophy. While the ‘Korpus’ reflects features of hot metal typesetting, the ‘Grotesk’ draws on the technical characteristics of phototypesetting.

About the Korpus Typeface

About the Korpus Typeface

There has always been a direct connection between developing the form of a letter and the techniques available for reproducing it. Changes in possible production modes have pointed to new directions in typeface design. The development of the typeface Korpus took inspiration from the study of inaccuracies, of a general kind, in the reproduction of letters. Of particular interest were typographic deficiencies found in specimen sheets and proof copies from the early 20th century.

Modern life is a continuous intelligence test

Modern life is a continuous intelligence test

Thomas Feuerstein wrote an interesting text about sampling. Actually, sampling is not exactly the right topic for Binnenland's discourse but in one paragraph he uses the German term 'Korpuskeln'. This is a funny coincidence since the typeface we use for the puzzle is called 'Korpus'. Corpuscles are all these small elements you get by fragmentation of a whole unit. And these elements constitute the elementary starting point for creation or recreation of something new.
