looking at this wonderful typography book i remember that in 1998 i was running a fanzine about font_fanatism, cyber_tipography and the culture of mall.
it was called NO:p; (means no print no postage no paper), you can have a look here http://mediasuk.org/no_p/splash.html and read the english version of the manifesto here http://mediasuk.org/no_p/manifesto.html
in the issue #3 i was talking about die neue typographie a book dated 1923 from the famous jan tschichold.
this book became very famous because for the first time in history a tipography teacher went to the jail because of his subversive idea concerning the morality of the design in germany. he has been prosecuted of "cultural bolscevismo" and the book has been censured as unreadible for 10 years.
after this it became one of the most important book of the history of tipography.
check it out here http://mediasuk.org/no_p/storia.html it is a milestone!!
