Great read on type 2 Jan 2007
By Jose O. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of those books that every designer should have read and probably own. It contains a lot of useful information including history, theory, application, a lot of examples, and a fair share of philosophical food for thought.

I would recommend it as a great addition to any design library, and for students as a follow up to a basic book on type.

I'm returning for different book on type 3 Nov 2007
By Ruthie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book seems to give a good history of type, but was hard to read for me. Pages were very busy with lots of sidebars, making it difficult to read, and many good layout examples were small and in black and white. I'm returning this book. If you want one good, easy to read book on type, get Ellen Lupton's "Thinking with Type." Less information, but much easier on the eyes to read, concise and clear.
Excellent content, beautiful layouts 12 Jan 2013
By courta.white - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As another reviewer has said, every designer (and anyone who works with designers -- developers, copywriters, etc.) should read & own this book.

Contains an excellent combination of history and advice that will make you a better visual communicator. The sheer breadth of content makes it relevant to students and old pros, and White writes in such a way that it's accessible to any reader.

Couldn't put it down when it arrived, and have referred to it several times since. Best book on type out there. Buy it.

Wonderful Book on Type 8 Jun 2005
By R.M. Fernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Hands down, without a doubt, this is the BEST book on typography that I have ever read.

From the history of type to page layout, this book is a thorough reference in a little more than 200 pages.

Pictures accommodate every page, yet there is a TON of substance to read if you're interested.

I would recommend this book to anybody interested in graphic design and page layout (this applies to web design as well).

Great book!
