Publisher Comments:

For designers, non-designers, and desktop publishers. Fine typography is timeless; typesetting technology may change, but there is only so much a good computer program can do. Using type creatively has more to do with aesthetics and common sense than it does with how the type is set, who sets it, or how much it costs. For guidance we can no longer look to the professional typographer for help; we are now the typographers.

Basic Typography explains clearly and simply how type works, so the designer and non-designer alike will be able to take full advantage of type's enormous potential. To help the reader find the necessary information quickly, the book is presented in a series of self-contained units that are grouped under three headings: Terminology, Design, and Copyfitting.

Synopsis:

This work argues that while new technology has changed the typesetting industry, what constitutes good typography has not. This updated guide to the correct and creative use of type, helps the reader to work with type effectively, basing decisions on aesthetics and common sense.

Synopsis:

This complete guide to the contemporary use of type includes over 100 illustrated essays covering such topics as measuring type, choosing typefaces, and arranging type on the page.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 187) and index.
