    BA thesis publication about Hungarian diacritics, made at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design.

    As all of the different diacritics in the Latin Extended character set, Hungarian diacritics have their own history and rules, from a graphic design point of you as well. In my thesis I present the graphical evolution of diacritics, focusing on Hungarian ones. Besides of basic introduction to the modifier characters’ past and present state, I examine the possibilities (rather than difficulties) of designing with diacritics, through numerous contemporary examples. The publication serves as a kind of manual for diacritics, thus it is bound to mimic one.

    The cover typeface is my own Ambiant Sans. The interior is set in Neue Haas Unica, with Big Caslon used for display pages.
