English term or phrase: squib
In einem Katalog heißt es über einen Künstler:

"He saw a typographer's squibs as bits of nature freeze-dried."

Ich weiß nicht, was er mit squibs meinen könnte. Der Zusammenhang vorher:

"Steinberg's attunement to documents reflected ... an uncanny form of visual literacy that made him see any mark on a flat surface - a letter, a number, a word - as "a reality", and to see every object and person as the product of a specific "handwriting". He drew documents and wrote landscapes." Dann folgt der obige Satz.

Lückenfüller, frz. bouche-trous, wohl auch squid. Wenn im Schriftsatz Löcher im zu setzenden Text auftreten, ein Fülltext, um dies optisch zu schließen. Kleine Werbung etwa, optischer Zierat, oder so was. squib ist ein Amerikanismus.
