Quick Read for Newbies
on 10 June 1999
Today, web information is mostly text. Case in point, you are reading this. Trouble is text on most sites is not appealing. To increase the text appeal of my sites I turned to this book.
The book is a good introduction to typography and a very fast read, under 3 hours. Good for beginners; however, it left me wanting more. It was more like a 10pm news trailer -- woman found walking city streets with nothing on but a hockey mask. I was expecting a book to explain what specific font conveys. Instead the book provides example situations and suggested fonts.
I give it four-stars, and try to find the next book on the subject.
