This is a Typophile thread based on Mr. Frank Raphael's book on Hebrew type, the title of which is not given. The book, published first in German and subsequently in Hebrew, provides an overview of the history of Hebrew type design, illustrated with many examples of different styles. The Typophile thread discusses the book in detail, and builds on the book's content with modern examples of Hebrew type styles. The thread also devotes some time to the use of the meteg (unified in Unicode with siluq) vocalization/cantillation mark.
