Since the Disability and Discrimination Act 2003 my work as a designer has meant that along with a clean clear layout the right use of font, size, kerning, leading and placement on the page is crucial for those readers who have difficulty. This book not only goes through the fascinating history of type but gives you detailed information about leading, kerning and the use of baselines that can help you with a clean clear layout and tricky type issues.

Is a riveting read if you are a lover of type, fonts and the printed word.

This is a well-laid out book which practises what it preaches, and demands the highest commitment to excellence. It's also very clearly and well written--not always the case with expert manuals. It's full of examples of good and bad work and takes care to avoid trade jargon or explain it where necessary. Highly recommended, but only for those who like the author really care about typography.

Unsurpassed guide to setting bodycopy. Possibly too advanced for beginners, but a great resource for the advanced student/professional.

This book is not user-friendly and does not give useful information to students in the field. It goes on and on and on about such detailed information that you'll never use. It was a huge waste of time and money. There are better books out there. My professor even said he does not recommend this book. Unfortunately my school required it.
