Publisher Comments:

- A Basic Course in Typography Featuring an Online Resource

- The indispensable classic, fully updated and integrated with a dedicated website

- An excellent and useful introduction to the subject.--Milton Glaser

- A must-have for everyone interested in typography

- First published in 1971, used universally ever since

The classic Designing with Type has been completely redesigned, with an updated format and full color throughout. New information and new images make this perennial best-seller an even more valuable tool for anyone interested in learning about typography. The fifth edition has been integrated with a convenient website, www.designingwithtype.com, where students and teachers can examine hundreds of design solutions and explore a world of typographic information. First published more than thirty-five years ago, Designing with Type has sold more than 250,000 copies--and this fully updated edition, with its new online resource, will educate and inspire a new generation of designers.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Book News Annotation:

New edition of a text that presents a complete overview of the field of typography, from the origins of the alphabet through contemporary design. Rather than overwhelming the student with an infinite number of existing typefaces, it thoroughly examines Garamond, Baskerville, Bodoni, Century Expanded, and Helvetica, each of which represents an important stage in the evolution of typography and is widely used today. Fully illustrated in b&w. Spiral binding.
