Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Adobe InDesign is the world’s premier page-layout tool, and its user-friendly yet sophisticated typographic controls are a big reason why. This updated edition of Nigel French’s InDesign Type, the first book to focus exclusively on the typographic features of InDesign, provides a comprehensive overview of the application’s vast array of type capabilities, from the basics of character-level formatting to strategies for designing complex layouts using grids. With practical examples, loads of tips, and a wealth of illustrations, InDesign Type offers guiding principles for how to get the best-looking type in the most efficient way possible. InDesign Type is a rich resource for anyone who wants to master the fine points of typography and works with Adobe InDesign.
