Format: Paperback
This book is filled with examples of typograph sytle art, which gives alot of inspiration and ideas. It teaches you the rules of typography and then teaches you on how to break the rules, without you messing up the artwork. Excellent book, it's a shame there are not alot of these type of books on the market.

Impressive 28 Sept. 2000
By M. Cosner - Published on
Format: Paperback
Designers wishing to educate / RE-educate themselves in typography, as it relates to the digital realm, would find this book an invaluable resource. The first chapter does a great job of establishing the traditional "rules" of typography. As the author simply states, "Rules must be understood before they can be broken". Visual examples corresponding with each rule help demonstate the Do's and Dont's of how to render type so that the designer can effectively communicate his/her message. Once covered, the remaining chapters offer wonderful examples of how to alter type in new and unusual ways. Many go a step further to explain what emotional responses can occur by using type in unconventional ways. The final section includes galleries of digital print work, many illustrating the theories from earlier chapters.
The only minor flaw with the book is that it should have included a glossary of typography terms. Those who might be new to typography or "a bit rusty" are bound to trip a little while reading the through first chapter.
Whether you are an Amateur or Seasoned Professional, this book should be a welcome addition to your library.

When i mean experimental typography and working with computer type, i except studies about ways to use computer and bitmap fonts - not experimental in the definition of "vary you type case and your experimental" or "punk and bloat for experimental."
unfortunately i should have known that ANYTHING labeled experimental typography should be avoided. just study the classics and break it down yourself.
