"Trans-1's creator, IS Bely (1972-), said that he hoped the typeface would illuminate the richness of language, the interconnectedness, the nuance of the web. But instead, Trans-1 reveals language's poverty, its inadequate approximations, how a web is made of holes, how the river of words flows always away from us".

About the Typefaces Not Used in This Edition [pdf] is a wonderful piece of short fiction by Jonathan Safron Foer published in The Guardian's Saturday Review.
