The practice of type revivalism in type design is the theme of this research. The objective is to prepare a theoretical-methodological reference for the study and production of digital fonts. Although this activity has been seen in typography for many years, the information available is fragmented and sometimes tendentious. This dissertation is intended to investigate the main characteristics of this practice, the different approaches according to type designers and its importance for design in Latin America. // Special thanks to Toshi Omagari, Pablo Cosgaya, Ron Carpenter, Gustavo Soares, Gerry Leonidas, Michele Patanè and Paul Shaw.
