Craig Eliason’s current research focuses on the history of typography and type design. He is developing a history of the labels used to classify printing types in the modern period. His earlier research investigated the theoretical and practical relationships between the Dada and Constructivist movements in the 1920's, particularly in the career of Dutch artist Theo van Doesburg.
